The cruise REPCCOAI takes place from 04 January to 18 february 2018 on, board of Marion Dufresne, from the subtropical zone of the Indian Ocean to the subantarctic and Antarctic zones of the Southern Ocean.

The REPCCOAI program has been going on for the fifth consecutive year and is used to sample zooplankton via a CPR (ContinuousPlankton Recorder) but also to sample mesopelagic fish with a small pelagic trawl, the IKMT (Isaacs Kidd Midwater Trawl), prey of many species of birds and marine mammals.
