Photographer's Note

Agadir is the first fishing port in Morocco and the first sardine port in the world. This is partly the reason why you will find lots of small and cheap restaurants nearby offering fish fresh off the boats. Many seamen docking in the port of Agadir sell their fish at auction. The fish can be directly processed thanks to canning and freezing factories. Visiting the port of Agadir, you will come across the shipyards where fishing boats are made out of Eucalyptus wood. Agadir is also a commercial port that exports cobalt, manganese, zinc and citrus fruits.

Agadir est le premier port de pche du Maroc et le premier port sardinier du monde. Cest en partie la raison pour laquelle on trouve, proximit du port, nombre de petits restaurants et gargotes proposant des poissons issus de la pche. De nombreux marins accostant au port dAgadir vendent leur pche la crie. Le poisson peut tre trait directement la sortie des bateaux grce des usines de conserverie et de conglation. La visite du port passe galement par les chantiers navals o sont construits des bateaux de pche en bois deucalyptus. Agadir est aussi un port commercial qui exporte du cobalt, du manganse, du zinc et des agrumes.
