Goals of the Center

LMRCSC has three primary goals:

  1. To prepare the future workforce for marine and fisheries sciences;
  2. To strengthen collaborations across universities to enhance academic programs in marine and fisheries sciences; and,
  3. To develop an exemplary capacity for scientific collaborations among partner institutions in the fields of marine and fisheries sciences.

Center Abstract

The focus of the LMRCSC is to increase the number of educated, trained and graduated students from underrepresented communities in marine science for career opportunities with NOAA, NOAA contractors, other Federal agencies, and academia. The mission of the LMRCSC is to conduct research on marine and estuarine systems congruent with the interests of NOAA Fisheries, and to prepare students for careers in research, management, and public policy that support the sustainable harvest and conservation of our nation's living marine resources. LMRCSC conducts research in quantitative fisheries; fish production through aquaculture biotechnology and enhanced disease diagnostics and control; and, trophic interactions among harvested and non-targeted species. Additionally, LMRCSC activities include identifying, mapping and restoring degraded essential habitats of fishes as well as assessing socioeconomic impacts of fisheries management.
