GUIAN SA is acting as Marine Insurance Broker since 1931, the third generation now is managing the Company.
Originally operating only from Le Havre, the company was first specialised in marine transport and fishing. However, with the expansion of the business and the opening of offices in Paris and Marseilles, river transport cargo insurance were added to our portfolio.
GUIAN SA has started developping aquaculture insurance early 2008 and a specialist on this field joined the Company to lead the dedicated team. Cedric (pas Mr) has more than 15 years of professional experience and worked for the Ministry of Agriculture and managed the Aquaculture Research and Development Department.. He also created a French professional newspaper specialized in aquaculture : AquaFilia (www.aquafilia.fr), still under his control.
At last, and in order to have the best coverage as possible, GUIAN SA has built his own Insurance Policy named AquaSecure and has selected some of the main and strong Insurance and re-insurance Companies (CATLIN and PARTNER RE) for underwriting these risks.
Aquaculture is the core business of our selected Insurer for 4 decades and thanks to his skill and experience we can provide insurance for all species of fish, algae, shellfish and crustaceans, offering the best possible conditions.
In the interests of providing a policy that meets the ever-changing demands of our clients, we always endeavour to update our policy to ensure the best terms for our clients.

We propose today to subscribe to a reconstitution Option. Why ? Simply because we realized that for the long terms growing species (as sturgeon, or for every broodstock), a classic livestock coverage don't allow the farmer to rebuild in a good way his stock.
Our 'reconstitution of stock' option (or restcoking option) is made for this specific case and is made to rebuild, on agreed value, and on 5 years, sturgeons stock or broodstock for hatchery for exemple.
