Analysis of the Scapeche accounts

The fleet of French supermarket chain Intermarché, “Scapêche”, is the largest French deep-sea fleet, with six bottom trawlers targeting deep-sea species, mainly in UK waters. In July 2012, the European Commission proposed to phase out deep-sea bottom trawling, a fishing method which has been described by researchers as “the most destructive fishing gear in history”. Scapêche is therefore subject to scrutiny as the reform of the EU’s deep-sea fisheries management regime is underway. Scapêche has claimed to be transparent, profitable and a major employer, but since 2009 and despite legal requirements, has failed to publish its accounts.
