If you live in the Kineret area or visiting
the Kineret lake this season or if you are interested in researching the biology
and chemistry aspects of the Kineret lake, which is the largest sweet water
lake in Israel, or if you have an aquarium at home and it is your hobby, you
are welcome to visit the Yigal Allon Kineret Limnological Laboratory (KLL).
The institute has several fascinating
and fun youth activities, such as research oriented courses and sciencesummer camps. You can read more
details at the end of this page.
The KLL is located on the north-west
shore of Kineret lake (Sea of Galilee). You can plan this visit alongside with
a fun water activity at the nearby Ginosar beach.
The Kineret Limnological Laboratory KKL, monitors major environmental
factors that determine the state of the lake and conducts limnologic research
aimed to understand how present and future conditions might affect the ecosystem
of the lake and the quality of its water.
One of the KKL main activities is to
monitor physical, chemical and biological parameters affecting Kineret lake ecosystem
and lake water quality. KKL scientists cooperate with many other scientists from
Israeli and from foreign academy institutes and assist them in various Kineret lake
See research results about the discovering of the cause of
blue green algae proliferation in Kineret lake:
The Kineret Data Center which is located at the Kineret Limnological Laboratory
(KLL) is responsible to archive and distribute the data which is collected on
Kineret lake, and to process the data into useful information. The Data Center
keeps physical, chemical and, biological data from Kineret lake.
For example you can find information on the Kineret lake Phytoplankton
and specifically on Cyanobacteria in the Kineret lake catalog (Phytoplankton family includes
The youth activities introduce students to the fascinating marine research and aim to develop awareness for protecting the marine natural environment. The students will learn by "hands-on" experience in marine science.
