French Polynesia

Marine species have always been a very important natural resource for the ancient island societies of the Pacific, and for Polynesians in particular. Today, these resources continue to contribute to the socioeconomic development of these islands. Once only considered as exploitable resources, fish populations within lagoons and along the outer reef have become indicators of global change, particularly with respect to change stemming from anthropogenic pressures. For this reason, the government of French Polynesia provides ongoing support to research programs and management initiatives to further our understanding of fish ecology, to develop sustainable fishing practices within lagoons and offshore areas, and to enhance the integration of traditional knowledge within current practices in resource management.

Founded in 1976, the French Society for Ichthyology seeks to unite people with a common interest in furthering our fundamental and applied knowledge of Ichthyology; to represent the members of the Society at the national and international levels; to promote and coordinate research in the field of Ichthyology; and to liaise between its members through the dissemination of a quarterly  publication produced by the Society.
