The sale board on Loctudy market, Brittany. Each market has boards for arrival and departure that indicate the fleet's activities. The trip boats (up to 15 days) have to give 48 hours notice prior to landing on the market. While at sea the entire feet are called twice daily to report their status and give a short response: "route peche", "en peche", "en route" "route port". If the weather is too bad to fish the repsonse is "en cap" (dodging) followed by their postion in lat & long. These boats have always been prepared to share their position amongst themselves.
