** NEW BOOK : CONE SHELLS OF THE SEYCHELLES - Published : Dec 15, 2018

I wanted to announce the imminent publication of my book on Seychelles cones. Two versions will be published in January 2019: a French and an English version. This is the result of a year and a half of work. This is a 173-page guide that will delight the beginner but also the specialist. 70 plates representing 278 specimens are presented to you. The book is in A5 format. It is easy to take on vacation. Of course, this book can be used throughout the Indian Ocean because most of the species is found throughout this geographical area! The texts are numerous (one for each species). Part is dedicated to certain identification keys for beginners...

** Family trip to Mauritius - Published : Sep 20, 2018

It was a long time since we wanted to visit Mauritius. This island regularly feeds the articles of our dear magazine and we see many emblematic species, especially in my family of predilection: the CONIDAE. It was during the Easter holidays of 2018 that we flew with the family for Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport. We chose to spend a third of our stay in the north at Grand Bay then the second third at La Preneuse and finally third at Pointe d'Esny.

It is an island that is located in the middle of the pass. The seabed is nice but quite damaged. The corals are not majestic, they have suffered greatly. The fish fa

** Voyage aux Seychelles Octobre 2015 - Published : Jan 13, 2016

Nicole et moi nous intéressons essentiellement aux cônes, porcelaines, murex et olives. Nous avons déjà rencontré la majeure partie des espèces de CONIDAE et de CYPRAEIDAE seychellois lors de nos précédents voyages. La recherche des coquillages rares n’est pas chose aisée. Il faut faire beaucoup d’apnée entre 2 et 10 m de fond. C’est très éprouvant physiquement. Nicole et moi nous intéressons essentiellement aux cônes, porcelaines, murex et olives.

Il faut faire beaucoup d’apnée entre 2 et 10 m de fond. C’est très éprouvant physiquement. Quelques espèces ne se rencontrent qu’en plongée sous-marine (cette année je ne plongerai pas). Même si certaines espèces n’ont pas ou peu de valeur marchande, elles restent très difficiles à trouver.
