Our research area is freshwater ecology. Studies include nationwide lake surveys, monitoring of biological and physical-chemical factors, environmental assessments, and biological studies at the species and population levels. The museum cooperates with other research institutes in Iceland, the Nordic countries and Canada..

Our main research projects Ecological survey of Icelandic lakes (ESIL) Implementation of Emerald Network (Natura 2000) freshwaters Ecological monitoring of Lake Thingvallavatn Monitoring of crustaceans in lake Elliavatn Monitoring of Arctic charr in lake ingvallavatn Ecology of the tadpole-shrimp in Iceland Environmental impact assessment of Hydroelectric
