Blancpain - La Pérouse Expedition

Blancpain La Pérouse Expedition

Discover the rare and splendid images of Laurent Ballestra's new expedition.

With Blancpain's support, Laurent Ballesta together with local researchers and part of his team led an expedition in November 2019 to study, characterize and illustrate the exceptional biodiversity of the La Pérouse Seamount.

Mont La Pérouse is an underwater mountain located 178 km northwest of Reunion Island. Its size is comparable to that of Mont Blanc: from more than 5,000 meters, the depth passes abruptly to just a few dozen metres. This geological structure is well known to Reunionese longliners who regularly carry out miraculous fishing operations there. However, for oceanographers, the area remains a real enigma.
