The Aquaculture Research Station is located on 178 acres south of Baton Rouge and includes 146 experimental ponds totaling 100 surface acres. Scientists conduct research on catfish, oysters, alligators, baitfish, turtles, a variety of freshwater game fish and crawfish. Complementing the crawfish research is another facility with experimental ponds at the Rice Research Station in southwest Louisiana, the heart of the crawfish-growing region. The goal is to make the aquaculture industry more competitive in the global economy. Research on coastal plants, bred to grow quickly and help Louisiana's receding coastline, is conducted at this facility.
