A word from the director
The scientific and research objectives of the CNRDPA are largely focused on the knowledge of marine biological resources, the preservation and development of fisheries resources and their periodic evaluation in the Algerian zones of influence.
Research activities in the field of oceanography, and more particularly in fisheries and the functioning of marine ecosystems, are becoming increasingly strategic and essential in any decision on the exploitation and distribution of common resources at national, regional and international levels.
It is true that today the management of living resources in the Mediterranean is the subject of new international cooperation programs, so the inclusion of Algeria in these various schemes is a challenge to which the CNRDPA must be able to respond.
To this end, the CNRDPA has developed a research strategy for the period 2015-2020, based on priority programs identified according to current conditions, its research capacities and the expectations of stakeholders (administration, professionals, civil society). Also, among the essential points of our policy to support the development of fisheries and aquaculture, the communication and valorization of research results are at the centre of our concerns.
