Description

The Newport Research Station is the Center's only ocean-port research facility. This station is located at Oregon State University's Hatfield Marine Science Center, which serves as a collaborative research hub for government and university scientists. Areas of research by NWFSC scientists include assessments of West Coast commercial groundfish stocks; studies of interactions among environmental factors and diseases of salmon; investigations of food-web changes in coastal waters related to climate variability and change; and studies on the survival of salmon as they enter the ocean. Unique features of this facility include its proximity to Oregon's groundfish and salmon industries; accessibility as a gateway to the Northern California Current ecosystem; office and warehouse space, and co-location with NOAA's Pacific Marine Operations Center and Oregon State University's assets including ocean-going ships and small craft for sampling in local waters, a ship-support facility for ocean-going research vessels; and a visitor center with public aquaria and displays of the Center's research.
