Large Pelagics Research Center

Campus: Amherst
Type: Off-Campus Research Facility


Working closely with fishermen and using state-of-the-art technologies, we conduct biological and ecological research on pelagic species including tunas, sharks, billfish, and sea turtles. We endeavor to develop a scientific understanding that supports effective ecosystem-based management strategies for these highly migratory Atlantic species.
