Databases

IH.SM hosts the Madagascar National Oceanographic Data Centre, which maintains the following databases:

  • Marine and oceanographic database: the main content is the physical parameters of marine and coastal waters (temperature, salinity, etc.). Data collection is from oceanographic cruises, commercial ships, coastal surveys, etc.
  • Biodiversity data: the main content is from reef monitoring (coral species, fish, plankton, etc.). Copy of the collection were sent to regional database on biodiversity (Afrobis) in South Africa.
  • Marine information management (library database collection) through the Odinafrica Project.
  • Museum database: collection of species specimens within the museum

Institutional projects

In accordance with National Policy and Sustainable Development Plans, the IH.SM has been executing applied research projects with several states and private ventures.

  • Rocky lobster stock assessment in the South East of Madagascar (for National Fishery Office)
  • The Impacts of industrial shrimp fishing on coastal marine environment (industrial fishing companies)
  • Deep sea shrimp stock assessment in the Southwest of Madagascar (UNIMA Group)
  • Squid and octopus stock assessments in the Southwest of Madagascar (COPEFRITO)
    Juvenile eels production (Regional program).

In 2006, the multidisciplinary team at the IH.SM completed rural development project on small-scale aquaculture in fishing communities around the lagoon areas in Fort Dauphin. This Project was undertaken in collaboration with USAID-(Global Development Alliance).

For the Toliara Regional Development Program, IH.SM has collaborated with many foreign partners:

  • The University Libre of Brussels and the University of Mons (Tropical sea cucumber culture) financed by the CUD (University Cooperation for Development) 1999-2007
  • The University of Stavanger (Marine Pollution in Tulear coastal waters) financed by NORAD, 2003-2005
  • The IRD of Reunion Island (water productivity in Fort-Dauphin lagoon in perspective of aquaculture projects) funded by the French-Universities Cooperation Programs CORUS) 2003-2005
  • The Professional Teaching Center CEMPAMA (Bretagne-France) working on the development of shellfish culture (oyster and mussel) and the creation of Fishery professional College in Fort Dauphin lead by the Region of Anosy.

The IH.SM has also completed research on the valorization of Spirulina, brine shrimp, algae, sponges and ascidians. Sponges and ascidians are the focus on medicinal and pharmacological research (in partnership with chemistry departments of Reunion Island, the University of Marseille III and the University of Tel-Aviv).

Furthermore, the IH.SM is hosting, since December 2000, the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) for Madagascar and has received telecommunication and computer equipment (V-SAT) from UNESCO/IOC, which has therefore helped the IH.SM to integrate, into regional and international networks.

Finally, the IH.SM is a founding member of the IO-GOOS (Indian Ocean – Global Ocean Observing System), established in 2003 for Global Climate Changing program.

The IHSM is participating to the regional programs such as ACEP (African Coelacanth and Ecosystem Program) and ASLME-SWIOFP.

 

Courses and Training

FARI

The IH.SM offers a wide range of programs with a full academic profile being available to students; especially those interested in marine and coastal environments and sustainable management of marine and coastal resources. The French cooperation Project (PRESUP-MADSUP) donates teaching materials and computer equipment to the IH.SM for the Technician training course (a two-year academic qualification).

The beginning of the 2002-2003 academic year was marked by the creation of a new Masters of Marine Technical and Science (MAST/ML). This new project was financed by the World Bank Project (FADES/BM/MINESUP). MAST/ML is a two year academic program, where students are given three academic topic options:

  • Fishery and aquaculture Production; Quality control of seafood
  • Integrated Coastal Management
  • Marine Biodiversity and Conservation

Since 2005, the Institute has started a programme for Technicians and Managers of Marine Protected Area with McArthur Foundation funds.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Marine Resources and Fishery and with funding from the African Bank for the Development, IH.SM has initiated a training programme for Fishery Engineers.
