Kristineberg

The Kristineberg marine research station is located in Fiskebäckskil. The station was opened in 1877 and is one of the worlds oldest marine stations for research and education. Today it is part of Kristineberg Marine Research and Innovation Centre, a collaboration between University of Gothenburg,  Chalmers, KTH, IVL, RISE and Lysekil municipality.

Kristineberg is situated by the mouth of the Gullmar fiord with easy access to both coastal environments and open sea, and there are several well equipped  laboratories with running water from the fiord. In many we can control air and water temperature as well as light conditions. The easy access to a range of marine environments offers excellent opportunities for field experiments, collection of live organisms for laboratory and outdoor mesocosm experiments, and for culturing of marine organisms.
