    At the approach of the equinox, the salt worker (the guide of the waters) of the Saline of Gruissan empties one by one the tables, to collect the crystals of salt. This drying makes visible the salt layer which can vary from 4 to 7 cm of thickness. Then comes the moment of manual and mechanical harvesting of the salt. More than 15,000 tons of industrial salt will be harvested in a few weeks, as well as a small production of heritage salt (200 tons of food salt) and 30 of Flower of salt. Here a tractor breaks the salt layer, giving birth to pastel color rails blooming with the Dunaliella salina, an algae rich in beta-carotene. In 2018, the quality of the salt obtained the eco-label Value Natural Regional Natural Park, the first one in France!
