The adventure of fishing

True fishermen are still around on our coast. Every night, they put to sea to catch fresh seafood: shrimp, flounder, flatfish, etc. They return to shore early in the morning, where they sort, clean and sell their catch. Later in the day, their fresh catch may be served at one of the local restaurants. Alternatively, you may decide to prepare your own fresh seafood dish. Fresh seafood is sold daily at the many local fishmonger’s shops and at the fish market on the wharf in Ostend.

Get on board and experience the adventure of fishing!

Catch your very own shrimp at sea with shrimp trawler Crangon in Ostend: experience three hours of shrimp fishing aboard this traditional shrimp trawler. The catch is then sorted, rinsed and cooked on board. Other fishing boats that take visitors along are Marcella II, Albatros and Franlis. In Nieuwpoort, visitors are able to go open-sea fishing aboard the Albatros, the Jonathan I and II, and through Liberty Sportfishing.
