How the physiology of aquatic organisms (fish, crustaceans and amphibians) is modified to cope with environmental disruptions induced by pollutants (pesticides, endocrine disruptors, etc.) or by global climate changes.

A specific attention is given to the interactions between xenobiotics and the immune responses of aquatic organisms.

The impact of multiple stressors, combining chemical, physical or pathogenic stress, is investigated under natural or captive conditions, in temperate and tropical (South-East Asia, Africa) regions.

In aquaculture priorities are given to the diversification of cultured freshwater species, with a special interest to the determination of fish nutritional requirements.
