About this book

Language: French

The French Agence des Aires Marines Protégées or Agency for Marine Protected Areas (which became the Agence Française pour la Biodiversité, or French Agency for Biodiversity in 2017) carried out extensive prospecting surveys between 2008 and 2010 on the faces of canyons and banks of French Mediterranean rocks. The mainland has been explored with the MedSeaCan campaign and western Corsica with the CorSeaCan campaign. The data were then processed, supplemented and formatted by GIS Posidonie (an environmental organization in Marseille) and IMBE (the Institut Méditerranéen de Biodiversité et d'Ecologie marine et continentale) for the Agence des Aires Marines Protégées.

This guide has been designed from photographic or video data to provide assistance in identifying the main species encountered in Mediterranean canyons using simple visual criteria. Each species profile presents both information from the surveys (photographs, bathymetric distribution, geographical distribution on a small map, observations from the videos), as well as more general information from bibliographic searches. This guide to the deep-sea fauna of the Mediterranean Sea is not exhaustive and does not present all the species observed during the campaigns, only the most emblematic or frequent in the submarine canyons.

Summary in French:
L'Agence des Aires Marines Protégées (devenue Agence Française pour la Biodiversité en 2017) a mené entre 2008 et 2010 de vastes campagnes de prospection des têtes de canyons et bancs de roches méditerranéens français. La façade continentale a été explorée avec la campagne MedSeaCan et l'ouest de la Corse avec la campagne CorSeaCan. Les données ont ensuite été traitées, complétées et mises en forme par le GIS Posidonie et l'IMBE pour l'Agence des Aires marines protégées.

Le présent guide a été conçu à partir de données photographiques ou vidéos dans le but de fournir une aide à l'identification des principales espèces rencontrées au niveau des canyons méditerranéens, en utilisant des critères visuels simples. Chaque fiche espèce présente aussi bien des informations issues des campagnes (photographies, répartition bathymétrique, répartition géographique sur une minicarte, observations issues des vidéos), que des informations plus générales issues de recherches bibliographiques. Ce guide de la faune profonde de la mer Méditerranée n'est pas exhaustif et ne présente pas toutes les espèces observées durant les campagnes, seulement les plus emblématiques ou fréquentes au niveau des canyons sous-marins.
