We are a research team at the University of Vigo and are integrated within the EcoCosT group. We are staffed by a dedicated team of scientists with a wide range of experience in all types of ecotoxicology studies, belonging to the Department of Ecology and Animal Biology and the Department of Analytical Chemistry and Food.

We are focused on enhancing the understanding of the chemical pollution on marine ecosystems with a view to identifying and mitigating those that pose a significant threat to their ecological integrity and provide the scientific basis to develop environmental criteria and standards for the protection of coastal marine ecosystems.

We operate in the framework of projects funded by the European Union, the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the Ministry of Environment of the Galician regional government and other institutions with environmental responsibilities as well as contracts with public and private entities. Our research activity has generated 9 doctoral thesis, more than 100 scientific publications and 30 research contracts with public and private entities.

ECOTOX facilities include two laboratories at the Marine Sciences Faculty and the Faculty of Chemistry and a third lab at the Marine Science Station (ECIMAT).
