Marine Environment Department

The SINAY company has extensive expert knowledge about marine megafauna : recognition of species at sea, thorough knowledge of their biology and ecology, especially regarding acoustic aspects of their biology and ecology. The consulting company conducts aerial and ship census programs at different scales : local (for instance, the Raz Blanchard, in North Cotentin), national (one or several French seaboards), or international (for instance, in the Pelagos Sanctuary, in the Mediterranean).

The field team collects data about the presence and distribution of marine mammals, birds, turtles, tuna, sharks and rays' species. These data are used during different types of surveys : Naturalistic inventories, impact assessments, incidence studies, stock assessments.
