Biomarqueurs chez le poisson : un outil d'intérêt pour le contrôle d'enquête

Abstract : Widely used in research activities, biomarkers are effect-based monitoring tools that allow assessing exposure of aquatic organisms and associated effects. However, they are weakly used in regulatory environmental monitoring programmes. The present manuscript highlights the potential of fish biomarkers for control monitoring or environmental investigation. Two cases studies based on angler observations were presented and discussed. The first one reports adverse effects of an industrial effluent in wild gudgeons and the second one describes the decrease of grayling catches. In this context, fish biomarkers allow to determine mechanisms of action of chemicals able to induce observed adverse effects. Complementary works are needed to determine relationship between biochemical responses and individual or populational effects and to define biomarkers as a predictive signal.
