Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center


The University of Southern Mississippi Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center is an advanced research unit housed in the School of Ocean Science and Engineering. The Center conducts research to support locally grown seafood and overcome obstacles that constrain the production of marine species. Research of the Center includes studies of aquatic disease and genetics, as well as off-shore design. Although the Center can work with any species from around the world, most of the work is focused on advancing aquaculture in the Gulf of Mexico.
