HEALTH AND OCEAN
THE BENEFITS OF THE OCEAN
The Institute of Oceanography is naturally concerned with the relationship between our health, the ocean and preserved biodiversity. Because the Ocean is a source of solutions!
The Ocean heals us, thanks to the molecules produced by marine organisms, and this is just the beginning, as marine organisms can quickly play a role similar to that of their terrestrial cousins for centuries!
Marine organisms are also used as study models because they often have characteristics close to the ideal model organism (prolific in embryos, simple and reproducible cell lineage, often external embryonic development, etc.). They have led to major discoveries in the varied fields of physiology, medicine and chemistry, including several Nobel prizes.
Everyday good health starts with a healthy and balanced diet. Every day, the ocean provides some of the elements that our metabolism needs, but the quality of the environment must be preserved!
