Two exploration campaigns in the Bay of Morbihan and around the « Grande Terre », based on the knowledge acquired during previous programmes, made it possible to choose eight sites representative of the coastal habitats of the Kerguelen archipelago. These sites are progressively being equipped with various measuring devices and are being monitored by photography and video. Other sites may be added to this initial network. The devices are now being tested in Port-aux-Français, near the BIOMARE laboratory.
One site in the Baie de l’Oiseau (Golfe Choiseul): Port Christmas [48°40.55′ S; 69°01.58 E / -48.68194; 69.03277] and one site in the Baie du Hillsborough (Golfe des Baleiniers): Ilôt des Trois Bergers [49°17.24 S; 69°42.41 E / -49.29000; 69.71138]
