The Bay of the Mont-Saint-Michel

Created 7000 years ago, the Bay of Mont -Saint -Michel, a UNESCO World Heritage has unexpected natural  wealth.

The strength of its tides, the regular exchanges between seawater and freshwater, which bring alluvium are a real nursery : fishes, shellfishes and marine mammals are born and develop there.

Migratory birds come to feed and rest during the winter.

Men also have their place : fisheries, oyster’ farming, mussels’ farming, the pre- salted sheep farming and the « polderisation » are witnesses of human and natural interactions
