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.
