“As a phytoplankton ecologist, working for the first time in the Baltic Sea, TSZ was just the perfect place to be. A beautiful setting combined with friendly and helpful staff made you feel immediately welcome. All the promised facilities were available to use and enabled a successful research project. I´ll be back!”
