At the beginning

Janine and Jean Auffret, wholesale sea-fish merchants at the fish market in the fishing harbour of Le Croisic, install a small aquarium in their shop to give their customers something to look at while waiting. The shop is gradually turned into a museum with stuffed animals, shellfish and crustaceans from all over the world.
