The sea navigation expanded rapidly from the very beginning of human presence in the region. In the Middle-Ages, Port-Louis, called Blavet then, had fishing as its main vocation. Nevertheless the bay sheltered numerous national and foreign passing ships, engaged in trading along the coasts.
In the XVth century Blavétins contributed to this prosperous business which remained traditional until the XIXth century, notably during the periods of peace.
War and disorders often disrupted this activity.
