Center for Marine Science

CMS Research :: Aquaculture

The Aquaculture Program at UNCW was established to utilize UNCW's strategic location in coastal North Carolina and its Center for Marine Science to teach environmental responsibility in conjunction with mariculture technology development. The goals are to develop and transfer to commercial users cost-effective, environmentally sound technologies for marine food production and to mitigate depletion of marine populations through commercial cultivation or stock enhancement.
