Fishing activities have a significant role in socio-economic base for a few coastal areas. Fleets operating mainly in coastal fisheries deserve a special interest due to their narrow links with the home base. Coastal fleet activities are not very known, restricting the capacity to deliver a diagnosis on their economic viability. This article suggests an assessment of the influence and the economic performance of the coastal fleets in Brittany. Results show similar economic performances for coastal units compared to offshore units. Furthermore, coastal units own additional advantages in relation to their energy consumption and capacity to operate without public subsidies. There are vulnerable to fishing effort of offshore fleets in the coastal zone in the absence of specific fisheries management measure.
