The Hydrobiology Pôle


Since 1977, the Hydrobiology station has been located on the historical windmill site of lbarron, in the St Pée sur Nivelle area of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region. Its previous location was the Atalaye plateau in Biarritz.

The research station mainly focuses on fish, aquatic resources and environment.

Our approach is two-fold :

  • We study the nutritional and genomic physiology of aquatic species produced by agricultural systems as well as candidate species for breeding (NuMeA lab).
  • We study natural fish populations in their ecosystems, focusing on behavioural ecology, population genetics and dynamics (ECOBIOP lab, in association with Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour).

The station controls a number of installations including 5 experimental sites. It has 53 permanent INRA staff members, receives around 40 training students each year and participates in various teaching courses. In addition to the two scientific labs, a third team provides technical and administrative support.

The station is administratively attached to the Centre INRA de Bordeaux-Aquitaine (Bordeaux Aquitaine Research Center) and is scientifically related to two scientific departments (PHASE and EFPA) of INRA.
