Anadromous Fish and Aquatic Invertebrate Research Laboratory (AFAIR Lab)

The Anadromous Fish and Aquatic Invertebrate Research Laboratory (AFAIR Lab) provides laboratory research space for the study of anadromous (freshwater/marine) fish and for the study of living organisms, both at the ecological and molecular levels. Since it was established in 1984, this lab provides researchers with space for the study of marine/freshwater fish and aquatic invertebrates.

Some of the current and past projects housed at the AFAIR Laboratory have been in cooperation with New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game and National Marine Fisheries Service. Research interests of present investigators include comparative neuroendocrinology, biochemical and molecular endocrinology, reproduction and physiology of fishes, stream studies on insects, and zooplankton and aquaculture.

The AFAIR Lab is directed by Dr. Stacia Sower. For further information, please contact her at 862-2103 or at sasower@christa.unh.edu.
