L'état de santé des poissons comme indicateur de la qualité des cours d'eau

Abstract : The assessment of freshwater ecosystem quality is a major regular and societal stake. Based on chemical analysis of environmental pollutants, several effect-based monitoring methodologies are applied. Among them, the measurement of biomarkers in wild fish is a well-documented tool in research activities. During these last few years, this approach was used in wild chubs and roach from Marne and Seine rivers. Response profiles of measured biomarkers allow to highlight disturbances of fish health linked to exposure to environmental pollutants. Similar works were developed around the world. For example, the BEST program assesses environmental quality of large US rivers using a set of biomarkers. Comparison of French and US monitoring activities will be presented but these studies argue for the deployment of effect-based monitoring tools to assess ecotoxicological status of water bodies. Moreover, these tools can be used for fish from small rivers and allow an integrated monitoring of river basins.
