Lena Point Fisheries Facility

The University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences completed construction of the Lena Point Fisheries Facility in October 2008. The faculty, staff and students of UAF's fisheries division in Juneau moved into the new building in November, and a ribbon-cutting was held in April 2009.

The new facility creates the infrastructure for a world-class center of excellence for studying Alaska's marine resources and offers the fisheries program with much needed space, vital for program accreditation and expansion. The UAF fisheries program is also undergoing a broad expansion and re-vamping through the SFOS Rasmuson Fisheries Expansion.

The UAF Lena Point Fisheries Facility is co-located with the NOAA Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute (formerly the NOAA Auke Bay Laboratory). With the co-location of the new facility, the SFOS fisheries scientists and students can continue and expand, their collaborative relationship with NOAA.
