Abstract

En 1976, année de l’indépendance du pays, il n’existait aux Seychelles aucune pêche thonière industrielle, et peu d’experts prévoyaient un développement majeur de ces pêcheries. Aujourd’hui Victoria, la capitale, devenue l’un des ports thoniers les plus actifs au monde, héberge l’une des plus grosses conserveries de la planète et l’industrie thonière constitue la clef de voûte de l’économie du pays. On ignore souvent que le thon en conserve consommé en Europe provient pour l’essentiel des eaux seychelloises, qui recèlent de très importantes ressources en thons, découvertes lors des campagnes expérimentales de pêche menées par des thoniers senneurs français et espagnols. En vingt ans seulement, les retombées socio-économiques ont été considérables, avec la création d’emplois et par ailleurs la mise en place d’une flottille palangrière semi-industrielle conduite par des opérateurs locaux. La recherche scientifique a en permanence accompagné ce développement, en assurant un suivi continu de la pêche thonière pour une gestion raisonnée des stocks et la préservation des écosystèmes pélagiques. Fruit d’une importante recherche documentaire et de témoignages recueillis auprès de scientifiques, de patrons thoniers et de personnalités politiques, cet ouvrage retrace les différentes étapes de cette « épopée thonière » jalonnée d’échecs et de réussites. Il nous livre le récit détaillé et vivant de cette tranche d’histoire mal connue et pourtant décisive pour le développement et la diversification économique des Seychelles, et pour les pêcheries thonières de l’océan Indien.

Abstract

This book is the definitive reference regarding the global status of melioidosis in 2018. Melioidosis is one of the most neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), so much so that it is not even included in the WHO list of NTDs. Yet modeling suggests that it kills more people worldwide every year than diseases that are much better known, such as leptospirosis and dengue. The reasons for this under-recognition are numerous, including the fact that it mainly affects the disadvantaged rural poor in areas that are poorly supplied with the diagnostic capability to make the diagnosis. In 22 separate articles, expert authors from around the world have summarized what is known about the burden of the disease in humans and animals and the presence of the causative bacterium in the environment in their countries or regions. They have also identified the main obstacles and challenges to establishing the true burden, and to ensure that patients receive accurate diagnosis and optimal care for this all too frequently fatal disease. Rather than focusing on the theoretical risk of the use of Burkholderia pseudomallei as a biological weapon, this book highlights its importance as a clear and present danger to global public health.
