Institute of Aquatic Ecology

                                                                                      

The Institute of Aquatic Ecology (Institut d’Ecologia Aquàtica, IEA) of the University of Girona is a research center founded in 1987 and devoted to all aquatic ecosystems, including marine and inland water habitats (rivers, lakes and reservoirs, and wetlands). It is currently organised in three Sections (Limnology, Microbiology and Marine biology), corresponding to three research groups. It presently consists of over 30 researchers on a wide array of water ecology topics (including studies on bacteria, algae, macroinvertebrates and fish), what facilitates multidisplinary research.

Most of the IEA belongs to EcoAqua (research group recognized and funded by the Generalitat of Catalonia: 2014 SGR 484 and 2017 SGR 548) and some members coordinate the web page Health and Fish.

Relationships of critical swimming speed Ucrit (a), maximal metabolic rate MMR (b) and absolute aerobic scope AAS (c) with fish mass for Spanish toothcarp, Aphanius iberus (N = 28) and mosquitofish, Gambusia holbrooki (N = 60).
Differences in swimming performance and energetic costs between an endangered native toothcarp (Aphanius iberus) and an invasive mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki)
Swimming performance is a key feature that mediates fitness and survival in many fish species. Using a swim tunnel respirometer, we compared prolonged swimming performance and energy use for two competing species: an endangered, endemic toothcarp (Aphanius iberus) and a worldwide invasive mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki).

Call for a PhD candidate in the frame of the new project #ConSarVar
We are seeking a PhD candidate of biology or similar, interested in working with small pelagic fish.
#ConSarVar is a new projecte on the genomics and condition of sardines from the Mediterranean and its implications for fisheries managment, lead by Jordi Viñas and Marta Muñoz ( from the Universitat de Girona).

Realtionships between parasitism an life-history traits
New paper out on the effects of parasitism on the reproduction and condition of a marine fish (Blue whiting)
High intensities of parasitic nematodes such as Anisakis sp. may compromise marine fish reproduction and condition through the energetic cost of the immune response

2019 Any Margalef. Centenari del naixement de Ramon Margalef
Ramon Margalef va ser un dels ecòlegs més importants del segle XX, quan aquesta branca de la ciència s’estableix com a pròpia. Amb nombrosos premis i reconeixements internacionals, és un dels científics més il·lustres que ha donat el nostre país.

El projecte PHAROS4MPAs: conservació i cogestió de les reserves marines amb criteris ambientals, socials i econòmics
El grup SeaHealth de l’IEA i la Càtedra Oceans i Salut Humana participen en el projecte europeu Interreg PHAROS4MPAs. El projecte explora com les reserves marines mediterrànies es veuen afectades per diverses activitats com el turisme, la pesca, l'energia eòlica, els creuers i el transport marítim de mercaderies.
