4/8/2019 : Start of the internship of Sara BOUTAAM (MSc Mechanics of composite structures: aeronautics and eco-design, Paris Nanterre University).

Title: Design of a toothed whale depredation mitigation device for pelagic longline fisheries: food for thought

Internship content:

  • Bibliography
  • Design of the prototypes
  • Field tests if possible

Supervisors: N. Rabearisoa, P. Bach, P. Vidal (Energetics Mechanics Electromagnetism Laboratory , Paris Nanterre University), E. Valot (Energetics Mechanics Electromagnetism Laboratory, Paris Nanterre University).

Duration: 5 months

Host laboratories: LEME Paris Nanterre and IRD MARBEC Sète

Objective: Design of a physical depredation mitigation device

This innovative device will have three protective skills: physical (barrier between the fish and the predator), visual (hiding of the fish) and passive acoustic (modification of the fish acoustic signature).
