Our Mission

EOMAR is a research group at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria that focuses on the ecophysiology of marine organisms. Download a brochure with the main info about EOMAR here.

Physiological ecology

It focuses on aspects of respiration, ammonia excretion, growth and production in marine organisms with special emphasis on planktonic communities.

Enzymatic biochemistry

This line of research focuses on the enzymatic reactions that control biogeochemical processes of marine organisms; it also works on carbon and nitrogen fluxes and mathematical models based on the principles of enzymology. Ultimately EOMAR aims to develop technology for the detection of biochemical process rates in the sea.
