Sweden's only field station in the Northern Baltic Sea Proper

The Askö Laboratory belongs to Stockholm University's Baltic Sea Centre and is situated 80 km south of Stockholm in the archipelago of Trosa (58° 49.5’ N, 17° 39’ E). The field station is a national resource, open to any scientist with an interest to study the Baltic Sea or to conduct environmental monitoring. There are also possibilities to arrange university courses or host conferences and meetings.

Research at Askö Laboratory is conducted all year round, but high season is during summer. The resources are used for field work and there are no stationed researchers on the field station. About 100 scientists, graduate students and course assistants spend time on Askö Laboratory for shorter or longer periods each year. The station has about 3000 'guest-days' of which about 1000 usually are research visits, and the rest are meetings and University courses.
