GDRi Rechaglo


Contact: Guy Claireaux and José-Luis Zambonino

The Rechaglo project focuses on the ecosystem approach to fisheries and aquaculture in the face of global change and overexploitation. The program is structured around five axes:     

Assessment of environmental changes as a result of climate change and scenarios     

Responses of marine organisms to global change,     

Effects of global changes on the dynamics of fish and aquaculture populations,     

Effect of global change on species distribution, accessibility and connectivity of their habitats and interactions with the spatialization of the farm,     

Effects of global change on communities and food webs.

The Associated International Laboratory BeBEST focuses on coastal ecology and is situated between the engineering sciences and the environmental sciences. BeBEST’s main objective is to conduct an integrated approach aimed at proposing new concepts in coastal ecology, to develop the analytical tools for testing them, and to implement them to study ecosystems that are inherently contrasting. To do this, BeBEST relies on the close collaboration between 2 institutes, French (INEE) and Quebec (ISMER), and their partner networks, and is part of the Institut Maritime France-Québec with the support of CNRS and UBO, and pool the research resources, know-how and training capacities of two research groups, Canadian (ISMER-UQAR, Rimouski) and French (IUEM-UBO, LEMAR – Brest). BeBEST is built around 4 workshops:     

Workshop 1. Sensor development (eco-technology workshop).     

Workshop 2. Ecogeochemical workshop.     

Workshop 3. Identification and calibration of environmental proxies.     

Workshop 4. Natural and anthropogenic constraints on benthic biodiversity and on the structure and functioning of coastal systems.

In addition to these workshops, there is a cross-cutting approach to the development of numerical methods in marine ecology. And in an original way BeBEST brings together private companies but also a group of artists all participating in polar missions or sub-Arctic.

The LIA BeBEST has been renewed in 2021 as an IRP (International Research Project) BeBEST 2 for a period of 5 years.
