September 2009, Lorient, France, the schooner Tara cast off to surf the planet and systematically sample the world Ocean biome with a transformative protocol, mixing physics, chemistry, biology, bricolage and high-technologies, academic and private institutions, and ... a lot of courage and friendship!

Today, Tara is back in Barcelona to celebrate the 10-Years Anniversary of Tara Oceans, which, after 2 circum-global navigations (2009–2013), has generated unique foundational resources for ocean science, across coarse but inclusive spatio-temporal and taxonomic scales. These include the largest DNA and RNA sequencing effort ever performed for a single biome, millions of plankton images, all these data embedded into a rich context of physico-chemical parameters.In this lecture, we will relate the genesis of this odyssey, illustrate some key scientific results emerging from the planetary data, and tell how Tara Oceans has inspired other explorations run by the Tara Ocean Foundation – Tara Arctic, Tara Oceans, Tara Mediterranée, Tara Pacific, 2019 Microplastics Mission, and Plankton Planet project – toward robust modelling of our ocean systems ecology and evolution.
