Research activities are developped through three associated research units UPMC / CNRS and the Institut for Research Developpment (IRD) and combine the fields of marine biology, microbiology, biogeochemistry, integrative biology, biotechnology. They focus on the study of biodiversity and the effects of environmental disturbance on organisms and ecosystems. The observatory has a tradition of hosting individual researchers or teams wishing to conduct experiments and take advantage of our infrastructure.
