REPCET system is a software dedicated to navigation and developped in order to reduce the risk of ship strikes between large whales and ships.

The system, invented by Commander Frédéric Capoulade (French shipowner) and developed within the Pelagos Sanctuary, should be extended in the ACCOBAMS area and everywhere where collisions between ships and cetaceans are a major problem. The computer system of REPCET is developed by the company Chrisar Software Technologies, labeled by Pole Mer PACA and coordinated by the association Souffleurs d'Ecume.

PostHeaderIcon First Biennial Conference on Cetacean Conservation in South Mediterranean Countries

The first Biennial Conference took place in Tabarka, Tunisia, from the 12th to the 14th October 2009. The organisation of this Conference came from a need expressed by several scientist of the region which the ACCOBAMS Secretariat strove to fill with the support of its Partners.The first edition of the Conference was organised in collaboration with the Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas (MAP/UNEP).
A total of 51 participants from 9 different Countries took part to the Conference to assess the knowledge acquired on cetaceans in the South and East of the Mediterranean, identify potential gaps and stimulate the development of conservation actions in order to promote the implementation of the ACCOBAMS Agreement. This Conference allowed cetacean specialists, active in the South of the Mediterranean, to exchange their experience and data and to discuss the best approaches and priority actions for a better knowledge on cetacean populations in this region where data still remain sporadic and scarce.
The Conference was organised over 4 sessions of oral presentations, one session of Poster presentations, one round table and one workshop on photo-identification techniques for cetacean studies conducted by Alnitak, an ACCOBAMS Partner since 2007.
The Proceedings of the Conference will consist of two documents:
  • The Book of Abstracts
  • The Proceedings of the Conference which will include the oral communication papers, the poster presentation papers and
  • the conclusions and recommendations issued from the sessions and from the round table.
