RESISTE project

The LEBCO team is a member of the multidisciplinary RESISTE project. The aim of RESISTE is to understand the resilience of a marine aggregates extraction concession, where, after 30 years exploitation and some 45 millions cubic metres of aggregate were removed, activity has stopped. Over the next ten years, the resilience of the site will be measured through topographic surveys, sediment dynamics, and fish and benthic diversity inventories.
Furthermore, a descriptive study of the food webs inside and outside the concession is underway, in order to obtain a holistic view. For this purpose, two members of the team went to the LER lab of Dinard for four days, in order to study and dissect samples from two fieldwork campaigns (40 stations). This led to 1000 samples of macro and mega-faunal tissues, all identified, dissected, packed and freeze-dried, which are now waiting in a dry place, ready for isotope analysis (d13C and d15N).
