Our Mission

We use cutting-edge tools to provide the best available science to resource managers, the scientific community, and the general public concerning theoretical ecological and applied fisheries and conservation issues. Such work involves myriad species including finfish, elasmobranchs (sharks and rays), and shellfish. In that process, we train the next generation of scientists to develop diverse skill sets to deal with our ever-changing marine and estuarine environment.
