Groundbreaking for New Marine Fisheries Lab

Groundbreaking for New Marine Fisheries Lab
Event: The University of Texas at Austin Marine Science Institute (UTMSI) will break ground for the new Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Texas Laboratory for Marine Larviculture in Port Aransas.

When: 1 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 24.

Where: UTMSI Fisheries and Mariculture Laboratory grounds at 1300 Port St., Port Aransas, Texas.

Background: UTMSI’s new 3,000 square-foot larval fish research facility, made possible through a $700,000 donation from the Coastal Conservation Association Texas, will allow scientists to increase hatchery success and production of important recreationally and commercially important fish species and to expand the number of new species that can be reared.
“This building will allow us to move our studies up to a higher level with a novel system of tanks and environmental controls,” says Dr. Joan Holt, associate director for mariculture and professor of marine science at UTMSI. “With the addition of new modern laboratory space we will have an unparalleled capability for critical work on Texas fisheries, with implications for fisheries nationwide.”
