Our Team

Gildas Bodilis, a fisheries engineer created ISI FISH to provide fishing companies with services and advice in the field of oceanography and instrumentation as a decision support tool, auditing and consulting in support of development projects.
Having spent 10 years as R & D manager in one of the largest tuna fishing companies in France, Gildas has exhaustive expertise in defining decision support tools for tuna fishing vessels and fleets:

  • implementation of environmental data integration systems coupled with capture information;
  • interpretation of oceanographic data and development of fishing recommendations;
  • optimisation of telecommunication facilities;
  • participation in the development of FAD buoys;
  • definition and development of monitoring interfaces for the parameters of freezing and conservation of fish on board;
  • development of a white paper of best practices for the conservation of fish on board.

Since 2012 he has been accompanied by Cyrille Bodilis, a fisheries engineer, who began her career as a scientific observer on board trawlers and tropical tuna seiners before using her expertise in the management and structure of the fishermen’s association, Cornouaille. Cyrille has therefore implemented programs of action on:


  • renewal of the fleet;
  • promotion of trades and products;

  • the conservation of products on board;
  • collaborative R & D projects

The team is today reinforced by Joanne Vallon, in charge of marketing and communications as well as seeking new business opportunities and liaising with International clients. Joanne is a native English speaker.
