If you want to know about how to farm lysters and to hear about the fishing period of the "Etang du Thau" this is the place!

Four Euros well spent to get a background to the history of Etang de Thau. I spent about an hour in the museum but it would be quite easy to speed through in 15 minutes and get a quick feel for what was on offer. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in history and aquaculture.

This little museum is great addition to the lovely fishing village of Bouzigues. It gives detailed information about the Bassin de Thau, the shellfish industry and the way the oyster production works. At the same time, it tells the story of individual fishermen, both now and in the past.
There are videos (almost none of them with English subtitles though...), old pictures of Bouzigues en Sete and a few -not too impressive- aquariums.
And then there is the actual fisherman equipment: tackles, hooks and you can see the constructions they use in the water for oyster farming.

Probably temporary -but we are not sure about this- was the exhibition showing the life of fishermen in China.

We paid only 4 euro, great value for such a small, but wonderful museum!
