In the National Fisheries Museum you stroll through the history of the Flemish sea and coastal fishing industry. Shore-based fishing and the story of horseback shrimp fishermen, a unique living tradition in Oostduinkerke, have their place here in the rich museum collection. Did you know that you can send a Morse code message in the museum itself or experience an (almost) genuine storm? The coastal fishing vessel OD.1 Martha and the impressive North Sea aquariums complete this atmospheric complex. The Fisheries Museum’s collection brings together patrimony, art, crafts and the rich natural life of the North Sea.
