The exploitation and the management of halieutic resources (fisheries and aquaculture fisheries; products markets); 3. The exploitation and the management of other natural resources (energy, water, mineral products ...); 4. Other economic valorisation (maritime transport and harbours, littoral industries, tourism); 5. The littorals: territories threaded under pressure that have to be better managed.
Learning outcomes of the learning unit
The general objective of the course is to heighten students' awareness of the two problems of sea exploitation and littoral management.
