KIMOCC projects in preparation

Sterile jellyfish culture
A culture of jellyfish Aurelia aurita is planned to be build-up in 2014. The aim of this culture is to continuously produce diverse life-stages of the jellyfish that subsequently can be transferred into and cultured under sterile conditions. By this, the microbiome of Aurelia aurita can be explored.

Plankton extraction device
The plankton extraction device will comprise a 3-step plankton filtering system for extraction of zooplankton and a skimmer system for extraction of phytoplankton. With this construction, different plankton fractions will become available as natural feed of Baltic-Sea plankton-feeders cultured in experimental set-ups at GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel.
