Bycatch and stranding

Being particularly sensitive to wildlife conservation issues, I focused my studies on the oceans as well as the interactions between fisheries and marine life. After obtaining the Master’s Degree in Marine Science at Sorbonne University, I developed an interest in interactions with marine mammals and more specifically with bycatch, which represent an important challenge.
I joined the Pelagis Observatory team in 2019 as a research engineer to conduct data analysis for the LICADO. This project aims to limit bycatch of common dolphins (Delphinus delphis) in the Bay of Biscay. The analyses focus on potential factors that may influence bycatch by gillnet (statistical modelling) and the effectiveness of repulsive acoustic devices in fisheries.
I also intervene, in the scope of the MSFC, on the adaptation of the inverse drift model, and analyses of results in the Mediterranean. This model is currently used in the Atlantic (Peltier et al., 2015, 2016, 2019, 2020) and is used to determine probable fatality zones of stranded animals as well as to estimate the number of animals killed at sea.
