Neutrinos may offer a unique opportunity to explore the far Universe at high energy. The ANTARES collaboration aims at building a large undersea neutrino detector able to observe astrophysical sources (AGNs, X-ray binary systems, ...) and to study particle physics topics (neutrino oscillation, ...). After a description of the research opportunities of such a detector, a status report of the experiment will be made.
