The ANTARES detector, located 40 km off the French coast, is
the largest deep-sea neutrino telescope in the Northern Hemisphere
with an instrumented volume of more than 0.01 cubic kilometers. It has
been taking data continuously since 2007. The primary goal of such a
telescope is to search for astrophysical neutrinos in the TeV-PeV
range. The latest results from ANTARES will be presented, including
generic searches for diffuse cosmic neutrino fluxes as well as more specific
searches for astrophysical sources such as active galactic nuclei or
Galactic sources. The rich multi-messenger analysis program based on
time and/or space coincidences with other cosmic probes will also be

The next-generation neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean,
KM3NeT/ARCA, is currently under construction and will consist in an
instrumented volume several hundred times larger than ANTARES. The
first detection lines of KM3NeT have been deployed successfully and
the first muons observed. Perspectives for neutrino astronomy with
ARCA will also be presented.
