On March 9, 1984 the Argentine Association of Limnology (AAL) was founded.
In 1984, in the old main lecture hall of the Natural Sciences and Museum Faculty (at that time this academic unit was operating in the facilities of the Museum of La Plata) a group of men and women related to this discipline made that longed-for desire concrete by approving the foundations of their training and electing their first directors board.
Twenty-five years after its creation, the Association was given a great boost by holding workshops, meetings, publishing newsletters and communicating with its members.
In 1991, the first international meeting was held in the city of La Plata with great repercussion and call, later the 1994 and 1998 congresses were held in the cities of Tucumán and Buenos Aires respectively.
