This document is an attempt to make a synthesis about cetaceans species present in the “Gulf of Lions” area, based on literature and also on existing databases. Only common or regular species have been taken in account, not occasional ones. The document begins with the presentation of seven species, from ecology to population and threats. Then three main types of anthropic activity are described, with the associated threats. Afterwards, the status of conservation of these species is synthesized. Finally important areas for cetacean’s conservation are suggested.
