To acheve missions of national importance
Experts identified various missions for conservation of marine ecosystems and development of the “blue economy”.
The INDESO center has therefore been commissioned to carry out the following tasks:
- Fighting illegal fishing
- Managing our fishery resources
- Monitoring and protecting the state of our coral reefs
- Managing our coastal areas and marine protected areas (MPA) in an integrated way
- Supporting industrial shrimp farming and aquaculture
- Fostering the development of seaweed cultivation
- Detecting and combating pollution from accidental oil spills
- Preserving coastlines and mangroves
Every day, data from more than 25 satellites in orbit around the Earth are received by the INDESO center.
These satellites belong to 3 families:
- Earth observation satellites that tell us about the Physical Ocean
- High-resolution radar satellites that can see by day and night and through clouds. They are essential tools in the fight against illegal fishing and pollution
- High-resolution optical satellites for studying the coasts with precision, enabling our aquaculture industry to develop while preserving the coastline, coral reefs and mangroves
MEASURING, COUNTERACTING, ADAPTING
- The distribution of the biomass of bigeye, yellowfin and skipjack tuna species is available for the entire biomass, but can also be organized by age group: adults, young, recruits, juveniles and even larvae.
