IRTA La Ràpita is a research centre located in the Ebro Delta Natural Park, Southern Catalonia. Research activities at IRTA La Ràpita focus on aquaculture, ecology, environmental monitoring, and landscape conservation. Ebro Delta is the largest wetland in Catalonia and one of the most important aquatic habitats in the western Mediterranean. It has been included in category A (of exceptional interest) by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Moreover, it is the most important agricultural region of Catalonia, with rice being the main crop (32,000 hectares, 50% of the cultivated area), grown between April and September.

During the visit to this IRTA centre on 12th September 2024, we will be introduced to different ongoing projects related to aquaculture, marine biodiversity and, if the harvest season allows for it, see the rice fields at the end of their growing period or being harvested.

It is recommended to bring a cap/hat, water, comfortable shoes and clothes, and sunscreen.

Conference registration is required to join the visits.
