School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences Juneau Center

The Juneau Center is home to 10 UAF fisheries faculty members and about 60 graduate students enrolled in the MS and PhD fisheries and marine biology programs. Four UAS biology and marine biology faculty hold joint appointments in the SFOS fisheries division and supervise UAF graduate students based at the Juneau Center.

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, marine policy 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 and Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute, U.S. Geological Survey's Glacier Bay Field Station, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's Mark, Tag and Age Lab. The center is located adjacent to the Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute in Auke Bay. For more information, visit or call 907-796-6441.
