Information: Lauriane joined the Oceanic Fisheries Programme (OFP) in March 2017. She obtained a Masters Degree in marine biology at the University of Brest in 2013. In 2016 she completed her PhD at the University of Montpellier/IRD on the interactions between the tuna purse seine fishery and whale sharks and cetaceans in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Her work in OFP focuses on tuna purse seine dynamics and issues related to FAD (Fish Aggregating Devices) fishing in the Western and Central Pacific Ocean (WCPO). More precisely, she uses various types of data to increase understanding of FAD use in the WCPO and the impacts of FAD fishing, as well as to provide scientific advices to regional and sub-regional organisations (WCPFC, PNA, FFA). This includes analyses of FAD drift trajectories (e.g., FAD density distribution, deployment hotspots, rates of FAD loss and beaching, potentiality for FAD recovery), acoustic data from satellite buoys deployed on FADs, in-situ data of beached FADs (recorded by local communities), as well as fishery data (logsheet, observer and VMS data).
