In spite of the exiguity of the places and the presence of dispersed shallow waters, Bestrée were assiduously attended per many sea fishermen, attracted by the proximity of the strong current, famous full of fish zone. In 1924, nineteen boats assembled by seventy-nine men had their fastener there. Then the number of these boats driven with the oar and armed with the racks gradually decreased.

crtBestrée, at the beginning of the 20th century, sheltered about twenty boats caseyeurs armed by eighty seasonal fishermen. One sees here the two types of machines usually used to track lobster and lobster: the cylindrical rack out of slat of châtaigner and the hemispherical rack in wicker.
Various installations made it possible to gradually improve the use and the safety of this port. In 1885 the large rock located west of the entry was connected to the coast by imposing a wall-dam in order to break the swell of south-wester, while a platform and a staircase found place with cliffside. A hand hold and cable winch came thereafter to complete the installations.
