Unifipêche owns a fleet of 24 ships specialized in the fishing and deep-freezing of tropical wild shrimps (Penaeus brasiliensis and P. subtilis) in the fishing exclusive zone (200 miles) of French Guiana. The quota allocated to the company is 4,000 t per year but catches are willingly restricted to 1,600 t per year for the sake of sustainability.
Employing 160 workers, Unifipêche was founded in 1988 by Compagnie des Pêches de Saint-Malo, a company established in 1934 in Saint-Malo (Brittany) for cod fishing on Newfoundland banks.

The house flag of Unifipêche, as painted on the hull of the ships (no actual flag seen yet), is "quartered" blue-red-red-blue by a white diamond charged with a black "U".
