This marine station dates back to 1935. Recently transformed and renamed "CRESCO" (Centre de Recherche et d'Enseignement sur les Systèmes Côtiers), it offers a modern working space for researchers and students. This new scientific centre is the result of the collaboration between the Ifremer team in Saint-Malo and the Museum. Its objectives are research, observation, expertise and the dissemination of scientific culture on biodiversity and the sustainable management of coastal areas.
