Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB)

Our vision is the understanding of all fundamental processes in freshwaters and their communities. Our research findings help to tackle global environmental changes and to develop measures conductive to sustainable water management.

IGB is Germany’s largest and one of the leading international research centres for freshwaters. Here, hydrologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, limnologists, fish ecologists and fisheries biologists from all over the world are working under one roof.
