Main Lab:

We have two large (500 and 1000 gal.) recirculating seawater holding tanks for
fishes and sharks in the lab. In addition, we have a large seawater table for
maintaining rays and smaller fishes.


Just outside our lab we have several large (1000 and 1300 gal.)
recirculating seawater tanks for maintaining larger fishes and sharks.


We have an electronics lab for building acoustic transmitters and working
on testing equipment. We also have a polarizing dissection scope for work on fish otoliths.


We have several static respirometers that are used to measure
the metabolic rates of nearshore gamefishes and elasmobranchs.


We have also have some space to accommodate some of the needs of our grad students



Callinectes (22' Glacier Bay): The RV Callinectes is our newest research vessel. She is mainly used for offshore research, pelagic fish tracking, and as a support vessel for our research at Catalina. The Callinectes is powered by two Suzuki four stroke 70 HP outboards providing a quiet fuel efficient boat for pelagic tracking.



Tracker (15' Boston Whaler): The Tracker is our customized nearshore tracking platform. The Tracker was donated to our program by Mr Joyce Bersuch.
