Institute of Marine Biology, Biotechnology and Aquaculture (IMBBC)

Director: Dr. A. Magoulas

IMBBC is one of the three institutes of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR), based on the premises of HCMR in Crete (Thalassokosmos) and having also facilities in the areas of Aghios Kosmas (Attica) and Souda (Crete). The institute was created by the merging of the Institute for Aquaculture (IA) with the Institute for Marine Biology and Genetics (IMBG) in 2012. As a consequence, its main research activities arose from those of its constituent institutions that not only subsist, but are further enriched by the potential of joining forces, synergies, complementarity and harmonized effects.
