Visiting the Aquaculture Farm

Welcome to La Ferme des Baleines

La Ferme des Baleines is here to introduce you to the world of aquaculture. While adults will enjoy learning more about aquaculture and oyster farming, kids will be thrilled to touch and handle oysters and clams in the farm's nursery! And who knows, we may ask you to help us care for them!
