Welcome to our world-class college at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. We train fisheries and marine science students for high-demand careers and fields of study. Our research addresses pressing issues in fisheries and ocean sciences, including changes in the Arctic. Our faculty and students work worldwide, from rivers and coasts to the deep ocean. We invite you to explore our website and contact us if you have any questions.
