PhD title: Cap Roux marine protected area: from a fisheries management tool to a territory development tool?

After graduating from Aix-Marseille University at the "Centre d’Océanologie de Marseille" where I studied marine biology and ecology, I decided to specialize myself in Fisheries at the Agrocampus Ouest (Rennes).

I started my PhD in October 2015 within ECOMERS laboratory in collaboration with the environmental NGO Planète Mer, based in Marseille ( The aim of my work is to define and to build a governance model for the Cap Roux marine protected area, based on the co-management principles. My study aims to involve the stakeholders (fishermen, scuba divers) in the management of this protected area and in monitoring, based on Citizen Science protocols.
