Ecologist of interactions between fish and parasites for more than 15 years, Pierre Sasal is interested in studying the effects of parasites in natural conditions but also under anthropogenic pressures such as aquaculture, protected areas, introduction of species or polluted environments. He is able to work both in the field and in experimental conditions manipulating the parasites loads. His publications (over 60 indexed papers) are as wide as species description to gene expression of manipulated parasite load.
