Fishing in Louisiana wetland

Student Electrofishing

The fisheries and aquaculture faculty is committed to working with outstanding graduate students to solve the complex problems that are currently affecting the production and management of aquatic invertebrates and fishes in Louisiana. Pollution, degradation and loss of freshwater and marine habitats, and numerous invasive species continue to reduce the quantity and quality of our aquatic resources, the diversity and abundance of organisms dependent on these habitats, and the production and harvest of commercially and recreationally important species.

The ecological and economic importance of the world's aquatic resources provides the basis for a diverse research program in fisheries and aquaculture at LSU. Take a look at the faculty Web pages to see the research interests of our faculty and the different types of research projects currently in progress.

We hope potential students will take the time to contact faculty members concerning potential research opportunities and will seriously consider joining one of the research projects in the School.
