Research Institutes and Centers


Fishery Industrial Technology Center

The Fishery Industrial Technology Center (FITC), located in Kodiak, is part of the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences. FITC is dedicated to contributing scientific and technical expertise to the harvesting, processing and marketing efforts of the fishing industry. The center's activities include the harvesting technology group, which studies fishing gear and methods with an attempt to make them more selective so as to avoid incidental catch. Its processing technology group develops new or modified seafood products that are safe, wholesome, nutritious, functional, attractive and stable. Its faculty have expertise in the areas of biochemistry, microbiology and seafood technology and engineering. In order to tap these resources for students within the university system, the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences offers courses in seafood science and interdisciplinary graduate degrees. FITC research efforts are often coordinated with the Alaska Sea Grant College Program and the Marine Advisory Program.
