Organisms for education and research

Before arrival and during you stay we can assist you in collecting of species and other material, especially in waters close to the two Lovén Centre stations Kristineberg and Tjärnö. We have sampling gear and skilled personnel for collection with most methods. At the stations we can store organisms alive until you start the experiment or giving your course. We can also assist you in experiment set-up. The cost depends on the extent of the work.

We are experienced in live-storing of many species. Scientists on the Lovén Centre have cultivated or are cultivating offspring of certain species. It is possible to achieve strains of micro algae cultures and zooplankton, which can be cultivated further at a Lovén Centre station. If in contact with a scientist who has been working or are working at the Lovén Centre, it is possible to get knowledge and skill from them how to get offspring from a number of species. Exemples are species within the organism groups echinoderms, crustaceans, molluscs, ctenophores, macro algae and fish.

Routines and knowledge in handling or cultivating organisms can differ between the stations.
