The IE ECP plateau, which is adjacent to the Hydrobiology centre in St Pée sur Nivelle, offers studies on fish and aquatic resources in their environment.

Field of application

  • Management of fish populations and their environment for the preservation of resources and biodiversity
  • Evolution of populations
  • Assessment of species in aquaculture
  • Development of approaches to experimental ecology (in controlled or natural environments), modelling and population genetics.

Themes and skills

  • Experimentation on migratory fish, focused on the study of the biology and behaviour of the species.
  • Monitoring of migratory populations through traping/counting of individuals, fish stocking and capture in the wild

Equipment and Instruments

  • Sclerochronology Laboratory
  • Tools for genetic analysis of natural fish populations
  • Control station
  • Tracking by pit-tagging
  • Radio tracking
