The IEO-CSIC National Center, dependent on the Ministry of Science and Innovation, created in 1914, has been dedicated to research in marine sciences, especially in relation to scientific knowledge of the oceans, the sustainability of fishing resources and the marine environment. In addition to his dedication to basic and applied research, he also provides scientific and technological advice to administrations on matters related to oceanography and marine sciences. The IEO-CSIC has its headquarters in Madrid and nine coastal oceanographic centers, many of which have important zoological collections, made available to the international scientific community. The Oceanographic Center of Cadiz (COCAD) is located in the Fishing Dock of the city of Cadiz and has a Collection of Crustaceans (CRUST-IEOCD), in turn made up of two sub-collections: 1) Collection of Decapod and Stomatopod Crustaceans (CCDE-IEOCD) and 2) Collection of Other Crustaceans (OCRUST-IEOCD).
