Lena Point Fisheries Facility, College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences

The Lena Point Fisheries facility is almost 31,000 square feet and has space for 13 faculty, four research assistants and 34 students enrolled in B.A., B.S., M.S., M.M.S. and Ph.D. programs. Four UAS biology and marine biology faculty hold collaborating appointments in the UAF Department of Fisheries and supervise UAF graduate students based in Juneau, Alaska.

Faculty supervise students on a broad array of fisheries, ocean sciences and marine policy topics, including quantitative stock assessment, biology and ecology of marine and freshwater species, molecular genetics, behavioral ecology, marine policy and other fields of study. Laboratories at the Lena Point Fisheries building include specialized facilities for seawater culture of marine animals and plants, quantitative (computer) analysis and fisheries stock assessment, geographic information systems, molecular genetics, salmon culture and marine ecology. Students also work in laboratories and facilities of other agencies in Southeast Alaska such as NOAA Fisheries’ Auke Bay Laboratory and Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute, NOAA's Little Port Walter Field Station, the U.S. Geological Survey’s Glacier Bay Field Station, the Douglas Island Pink and Chum, Inc. hatchery and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s Mark, Tag and Age Lab.

The facility is adjacent to the National Marine Fisheries Service Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute. For more information, visit the Lena Point Fisheries website or call 907-796-5443.
