Ideal working conditions: our research infrastructure

IGB offers excellent infrastructures to our scientists and external researchers, enabling them to achieve their research objectives. This infrastructure includes the globally unique LakeLab in Lake Stechlin, an ultra-modern aquaponics system, an artificial weir and a 3D telemetry system. We present our infrastructures and the corresponding contact persons on these pages.


Our research library focuses on limnology, ecohydrology and fisheries.


The LakeLab in Lake Stechlin is a globally unique experimental facility.
