Day two, dean’s tour: MARC & CMAST | CALS News Center | News from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, NCSU | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it

The Dean visited the Marine Aquaculture Research Center, Smyrna, and the Center for Marine Aquatic Science and Technology, Morehead City, NC, visiting with more than 30 alumni, supporters, and CALS faculty.

 

The Dean asked supporters “to help validate what we need to do as a college,” as CALS moves through its strategic planning process.

 

He learned about MARC, where researchers are exploring aquaculture with salt water species, such as blue crabs; environmentally friendly water handling in aquaculture; sturgeon aquaculture; hybrid striped bass feed research; wind energy self-sufficiency research; local seafood marketing efforts, and more.
