At the Northeast Fishery Center we provide expertise in population genetics, genomics, and eDNA technology, fish ecology and population dynamics, fish culture technology, fish health, freshwater mussel health, and experimental design and statistical analyses.

Projects and Research
We use science and innovative technology to evaluate the status and trends of aquatic species, to evaluate the health of wild and hatchery fish, and to fill gaps in our knowledge needed to manage sustainable populations of fish and other aquatic species.
