A pioneer in ocean science, IFREMER’s cutting-edge research is grounded in sustainable development and open science. Our vision is to advance science, expertise and innovation to:
- Protect and restore the ocean
- Sustainably use marine resources to benefit society
- Create and share ocean data, information & knowledge.
With more than 1,500 personnel spread along the French coastline in more than 20 sites, the Institute explores the 3 great oceans: the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans. A leader in ocean science, IFREMER is managing the French Oceanographic Fleet and its dedicated scientists create ground-breaking technology to push the boundaries of ocean exploration and knowledge, from the abyss to the atmosphere-ocean interface.
Well-established in the international scientific community, our scientists, engineers and technicians are committed to advance knowledge about our planet’s last unexplored frontiers. They provide the science we need for informed decision-making and public policy and they transfer this knowledge and technology to businesses to fulfill public and private needs. Core to our mission is also to strengthen public awareness about the importance of understanding the ocean and its resources, and empowering future generations of leaders through education and outreach national campaigns.
Founded in 1984, IFREMER is a French public organization and its budget approximates 240 million euros. It is operating under the joint authority of the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the French Ministry for the Ecological and Solidary Transition, and the French Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
The "Marine Resources in French Polynesia" (RMPF) unit, integrated within UMR 241 "Ocean Island Ecosystems" (EIO) is developing research in support of the sustainable development of marine sectors in French Polynesia. The main sectors concerned are pearl farming, marine fish farming and shrimp farming. Beyond this approach applied by sector, the unit is developing its research in an ecosystem framework aimed at a better understanding of the lagoon systems exploited by integrating environmental aspects both for a better knowledge of animal physiology and ecological processes as well as to take into account anthropogenic impacts at different scales. RMPF is a member of Labex CORAIL.
