Reservation of the ships whatever the type of targeted activity (research, teaching, observation, aquarium, technology...) is done by biannual calls organized by the French Oceanographic Fleet (FOF).

Applications are then examined by a local evaluation committee representative of the different units of the OOB, which gives an opinion on the feasibility of the request. A biannual schedule is then drafted by the service manager.
