About Us

Founded in 2002, Loligo® Systems is a privately owned research spin-off company from the University of Copenhagen and Aalborg University in Denmark.

Based on a background in science and in co-operation with leading universities around the world, Loligo Systems develop new innovative products for aquatic biology, animal physiology, and behavioral research and teaching.>

Products are mainly animal chambers, flumes, sensors, instruments and software for automated oxygen consumption measurements, and equipment for video-based tracking and analysis of animal behaviour.

We feel strongly about the international scientific community, and sponsor meetings, symposia and student prizes.

Offering special-made solutions and free extensive help, advice and analysis to junior and senior scientists, is something we do every day and take pride in.

Our goal is global leadership in equipment for physiological, behavioural and kinematic measurements in fish and other aquatic breathers.
