UMES students of the American Fisheries Society are hosting a daylong symposium focused on Delmarva's Aquatic Resources and Ecosystems on April 28, 2017.
NOAA LMRCSC scientists and students conduct research in the marine sciences in areas like marine ecosystem change and prediction, habitat research and protection, and safe seafood and aquaculture.
The LMRCSC partner institutions educate students in the marine sciences at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Leveraged programs provide learning opportunities for elementary, middle and high school students.
Through strong university collaborations, the NOAA LMRCSC enhances academic programs and improves diversity in the future workforce in marine and fisheries sciences.
NOAA LMRCSC Director Paulinus Chigbu, Ph.D., was honored with a UMES Distinguished Service Award.
We appreciate your patience during this time.
The NOAA Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center (LMRCSC) trains and graduates students from underrepresented communities in marine science for careers in research, management, and public policy that support the sustainable harvest and conservation of our nation's living marine resources. With its partner institutions, the LMRCSC conducts research on marine and estuarine systems congruent with the interests of NOAA Fisheries.
The Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center is supported by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
