OSU Seafood Lab in Astoria, Oregon

Part of the Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station with locations in Newport and Astoria.  Also affiliated with the OSU Department of Food Science & Technology.



O.H. Hinsdale Wave Lab

The laboratory conducts research on coastal and nearshore processes involving: wave-structure interaction, nearshore hydrodynamics and sediment transportation, marine renewable energy, tsunami and coastal hazards, fixed and floating structures. Through our work we deliver research, testing, and education and outreach opportunities to improve the resilience and sustainability of coastal areas, and to develop innovative solutions to the design of coastal infrastructure.



Newport Aquaculture Lab (NAL)

The facility was built for aquaculture research and is unique on the West Coast. The uniqueness of this building has facilitated obtaining grants worth many millions over the years, including high profile projects such as the state-sponsored Molluscan Broodstock Program (MBP), dulse culture, and a $3.5m grant from BP to work on the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) spill.
