• Researchers at the Center for Ocean Engineering, in collaboration with Canakkale University, Turkey, and the International Copper Association, are working to better understand the fouling resistance, hydrodynamics and volumetric integrity of aquaculture cage systems utilizing copper alloy net chambers. UNH personnel performed laboratory experiments to measure the material and hydrodynamic properties, and used this information to optimize fish cage design and net chamber attachments. In 2011, researchers deployed two net pens off the coast of Turkey.

  • Wolffish research conducted by Dr. Elizabeth Fairchild.

    The NE Wolffish Tagging Project represents a partnership of scientists and fishermen who are researching the movements of Atlantic Wolffish (Anarhichas lupus) in Massachusetts Bay.  Learn more.
