SHARK PROJECT: Bay of Biscay, South-East (EUROPE)

(Scientist & Project Owner : Laurent Delphin, EU (fr-64))

For people who speak english, please kindly scroll down this window to read this overviw in english. Thank you.

SHARK PROJECT : Bay of Biscay, South-East (EUROPE) est un projet de recherche non subventionné, sans rémunération d'aucune sorte, unipersonnel et  totalement libre de son fonctionnement et de sa direction (vue apolitique), qui a pour but l'étude, l'observation, le marquage, l'identification des espèces de requins présents (tout spécialement les migrateurs), leur suivi, ainsi que la préservation et le développement de l'écosystème squale dans le Golfe de Gascogne ("Bay of Biscay"), l'accent étant mis sur la zone Sud-Est de cette immense baie (nominalement : depuis la frontière franco-hispanique, sur toutes les côtes basques et landaises, plus une option d'extension dépendant soit de la stratégie de recherche, soit des résultats obtenus).

La protection de cet écosystème, si riche et si précieux pour l'ensemble des espèces vivant dans les océans voire sur l'ensemble de la planète, tient compte aussi de la lutte contre le trafic, la pratique illégale de pêche, le "shark-finning", le "shark cull", ... toutes pratiques qui dérégulent et détruisent l'écosystème planétaire et marin, par effet de cascade trophique.

Le 11 novembre 2019, et parce que des informations intéressantes ont été trouvées, j'étends les zones marines d'investigation à : la Baie de Somme, la Manche et la Mer du Nord, ajoutant donc la Belgique et les Pays-Bas.

Ce projet de recherche est limité dans l'espace, mais pas dans le temps. Il reste sans profit ni rémunération. Je vous remercie de votre visite, comme je remercie ceux et celles qui contribuent et contribuèrent financièrement pour que ce projet naisse et vive.

SHARK PROJECT : Bay of Biscay, South-East (EUROPE) is a Research Project fully dedicated to the study, the observation, the tagging, the tracking, and the identification of the species of sharks swimming in the Bay of Biscay, a part of the North-East Atlantic Ocean. Emphasis is particularly made on the migratory sharks, such as the Shortfin Mako Sharks, the Blue Sharks, as well as the rare but possible Great White Sharks, among others.

SHARK PROJECT, Bay of Biscay is led, managed, and performed by a single person, namely the scientist and project owner, and is fully independent (apolitical view). This research study doesn't benefit from any kind of subsidies, and no wage is expected. It works on a free-will basis : the scientist as well as other people involved (e.g., fishermen), all are volunteers (but professional fishermen).

SHARK PROJECT is area-limited, but not time-limited (i.e., no end is expected). Area speaking, I investigate (migratory) sharks roughly from the french-spanish border South through Côte Basque-Landes beaches North (hence, it includes a big submarine canyon). However, depending on the strategy that could be evolving or the results obtained, the investigated area could be extended. In other words, an in-depth, and yet never made, study will be done for the South-East part of the vast Bay of Biscay (in french : Golfe de Gascogne).

Besides Orcas (Killer Whales), and even likely very far above, Sharks are the major top predators for the aqua-biosphere. So, protecting the Shark ecosystem in the scope of SHARK PROJECT, so rich and so precious for the overall set of species living in the oceans and seas worldwide, also involves such tasks as struggling against the traffic, against-the-law practices of fishing (whatever it is amateur or professional), the shark finning, the shark cull... all practices that deregulate and kill the Earth planet ecosystem as a whole, as a result of the trophic cascade. Obviously, like the coral bleaching, oceans and seas will be the first planetary sphere to suffer from this.

Since November 11, 2019, and because new informations found are particularly positive, I extend the area of investigation - and tagging tasks - to : Bay of Somme, Channel, and North Sea, so including another countries such as Belgium and The Netherlands.

Hence, SHARK PROJECT is area-limited but no time-limited. Protection, and population increase of the sharks are some of the main goals of this project, according to the following and well-known principle : No shark, no Life. It remains without subsidies or wages. Consequently, I do thank you very much for your kind attention and for having paid a visit here, as well as I do thank people who contribute, or have contributed, financially to make this research study alive and living.

 

Thank you very much.
