Moored at Bassin des Chalutiers are the two ships comprising the Musée Maritime Neptunea (Maritime Museum), the meteorological research vessel France 1, and Angoumois, a chalutier (fishing boat). A land-based extension of the museum on the adjacent dock has to incorporate a section dedicated to Jacques Cousteau, and a re-creation of the city’s ancient fish market.
