French term or phrase:l’armement
Création de l’armement Unifipêche en Guyane et lancement de 5 crevettiers neufs.
Explanation: 'armement' is just a company that runs ships whether they be in fishing or other trades. There is no reason to labour the point that the company is involved in the fishing industry, the fact that it is going to launch 5 shrimpers makes that clear. The word comes from 'armer' which means 'to equip a ship for a voyage'.
