Species Studied - Marrowstone Marine Field Station

Science Center Objects

The Disease Ecology Research Program at the Marrowstone Marine Field Station addresses fundamental disease processes that impact wild marine and anadromous fishes.  The program is not designed around particular host or pathogen species; rather we investigate diseases processes that involve numerous species of marine hosts and pathogens.  Please follow the links for more information about some of the species that are represented in some of our current research efforts.
