"The first international scientific symposium on the Kerguelen Plateau was held from 14 to 16 April 2010 in the oldest marine station of the world (150th anniversary, 2009). This station belongs to the Museum national d'Histoire naturelle (MNHN) and is situated at the mouth of the Concarneau fishing and sailing harbor leading to the Atlantic Ocean"--Foreword.
The Kerguelen Plateau, located in the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean, is the second largest submarine plateau in the world. Despite the remoteness of the islands that emerge from the Plateau, following their discovery at the end of the 18th century the abundant marine living resources of the region have been a focus of human endeavour. Initially, whales and seals were harvested, but at the turn of the 20th century, fisheries for finfish commenced and continued since. The latter half of the 20th century saw increased marine research activities, which includes oceanographic, biological and ecological studies, directed at better understanding this region and its role in the diversity, structure and function of the ecosystems of the Southern Ocean and sustainable use of its resources. This book is a compilation of scientific contributions from the Symposium The Kerguelen Plateau, Marine Ecosystem and Fisheries, held in 2010 at Concarneau, France.
