Jean-Charles NAHON, B.E. Mauric – (France)
Christian ODDON, B.E. Mauric – (France)
One could write a novel on the story of Mediterranean tuna seiners from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present days. Many exuberating characters, coming out of a Rabelais novel or a Moliere theatre piece, would accompany the story of human beings and techniques. The joint efforts of seamen and naval architects have leaded a quite fast evolution of ships and fishing technologies on a few decennia. We are going to depict the main features of this evolution since the years 1980.
