EU network of mesocosms facilities for research on marine and freshwater ecosystems open for global collaboration.


Tvärminne Mesocosm Facility (TMF)

A large nature reserve surrounding TZS is dedicated to research, providing access to a pristine environment for field mesocosms. Research vessels and technical services support sampling and maintenance; a hovercraft allows winter-studies. Aquarium facilities with natural or artificial light are available for flow-through experiments at up to 100 000 m3 daily water capacity. A marine laboratory provides analytical services.
