One of the major purposes of the ANTARES neutrino telescope is the indirect search for dark matter. The ANTARES detector is located on the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, 40 km off the southern French coast. In this talk the results of the search for dark matter signals from the Sun, the Galactic Center and the Earth core, produced with different analysis methods, will be presented. There are various advantages in indirect searches with neutrino telescopes when comparing to other experiments. The analysis for the Sun puts good limits on the spin--dependent scattering cross section between dark matter and hydrogen and the limits presented for the Galactic Center are the most stringent of all indirect detection experiments for WIMP masses above 30 TeV.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
