Ifremer is a public institute of industrial and commercial nature. It is placed under the joint supervision of the ministries for Higher Education and Research, for Agriculture and Fisheries and for Ecology and Sustainable Development. Ifremer develops scientific expertise in monitoring, use and promotion of coastal seas, monitoring and optimising aquaculture products, promoting scientific advices on fisheries resources for a sustainable fishing, exploring the seafloor and the ocean biodiversity, forecasting ocean circulation, marine ecosystems evolution, and manages vessels and underwater vehicles for the French scientific community. Operating an annual budget of 235 million Euros, Ifremer employs 1500 people and runs a wide array of experimental facilities, including aquaculture facilities in Palavas-les-Flots on the Mediterranean and La Tremblade, and Brest on the Atlantic coast, but also in the Pacific (Tahiti and New Caledonia). Ifremer has been involved for 30 years in research in aquaculture and in the study of marine biology and aquatic ecosystems. Ifremer addresses all the major scientific fields related with aquaculture, notably fish physiology, genetics, rearing systems technology, both on fish and shellfish biological models.

MARBEC, MARine Biodiversity, Exploitation and Conservation, is a research unit whose objective is the study of marine biodiversity in lagoon, coastal and offshore ecosystems, at different integration levels, molecular, individual, population and community aspects and the way humans use this biodiversity. It gathers some of the staff of 4 organizations : IRD, Ifremer, UM and CNRS.

It focuses on three main objectives :

  • To describe marine biodiversity, understand its dynamics and the functioning of marine ecosystems
  • To analyze the impact of anthropogenic pressure on these ecosystems and develop responses scenarii to global change
  • To reconcile exploitation (especially fisheries and aquaculture), and conservation and respond to societal expectations (expertise, innovation, remediation).

Its research activities are structured into eight scientific topics including "Sustainable aquacultures".
