- Outreach and Engagement
Aquaculture is the globe’s fastest growing animal protein industry and a vital food sector for meeting the nutritional needs of the world’s rapidly growing population. Oregon State University has a rich history in aquaculture research and education, a diversity of programs, and a broad base of critical assets. To maximize the university’s potential and support stakeholder needs, a diverse group of OSU faculty are working on developing aquaculture strategic concepts to guide future collaboration, investment, and programs. The concepts will incorporate ideas consistent with OSU’s Prosperity Widely Shared Strategic Plan and the Marine Studies Initiative.

The OSU Aquaculture website allows faculty to learn about Aquaculture research conducted by their colleagues as well as demonstrate the diversity, size, and importance of our collective research programs. In order to better keep track and showcase these projects, Aquaculture faculty have created a survey for researchers to take.
The goal of this survey is to collect Aquaculture research and publications conducted by Oregon State University or in partnerships with OSU. Researchers, projects, and publications will be showcased on the OSU Aquaculture website.
If you would like your work to be featured, please answer the survey linked to the QR code below.
Aquaculture is the breeding, rearing and harvesting of fish, shellfish, plants, algae, and other organisms in fresh or salt water.
