CERM-MTer - The CERM, Center for the Study of Mediterranean Rivers, is the environmental area of the Ter River Museum, associated to the Municipality of Manlleu (NE Catalonia). It’s a non-profit organization. The CERM is an independent research center which started in 2011 working on the study, dissemination and preservation of the Ter River and, by extension, other Mediterranean rivers and continental water ecosystems. The CERM is focused on ecological status assessment of rivers and lakes (riparian vegetation, aquatic macroinvertebrates, fish), and assessment of solutions to improve river connectivity for fish and ecological restoration projects of water inner systems as well. It also drives river conservation projects –riparian vegetation restoration, river habitat restoration and fish migration improvement-, mainly associated to land stewardship agreements. The CERM is also involved on environmental education –it provides training to thousands of students each year- and actively participates in public awareness. It works essentially in the whole of Catalonia, also in other areas in Spain, collaborating with universities and other institutions, and participates in several international projects, collaborating with universities and other institutions.
