School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences Juneau Center • (907) 465-6461
The Juneau Center is home to eight UAF fisheries faculty members and about 40 graduate students enrolled in the M.S. and Ph.D. fisheries programs. It is located adjacent to the University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) campus on the shore of Juneau’s Auke Bay; several University of Alaska Southeast faculty have joint appointments in SFOS and supervise UAF graduate students.
Faculty supervise students’ research on a broad array of biological problems in laboratories that specialize in quantitative stock assessment, biology and ecology of marine and freshwater species, molecular genetics, behavioral ecology and other fields of study. Laboratories at the Juneau Center include specialized facilities for seawater culture of marine animals and plants, quantitative (computer) analysis and fisheries stock assessment, geographic information systems, molecular genetics, salmon culture and marine ecology. Juneau Center students also work in laboratories and facilities of other agencies in Juneau such as NOAA Fisheries’ Auke Bay Laboratory, U.S. Geological Survey’s Glacier Bay Field Station, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s Mark, Tag and Age Lab.
