Marine, Estuarine and Freshwater Biology


This program, which awards a bachelor of science degree in marine, estuarine and freshwater biology (MEFB), provides a broad background for undergraduates interested in marine, estuarine, and freshwater biology, aquaculture and fisheries.  It integrates theoretical and hands-on courses and offers plentiful research opportunities in the marine, estuarine and freshwater sciences.   UNH has aquaculture facilities, and coastal and estuarine research laboratories; together with Cornell, it administers the summer undergraduate programs at the Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island off the coast of New Hampshire and Maine.
