Our Location

Ted Stevens Marine Research Institute (TSMRI) is Alaska’s largest fisheries research facility, providing fisheries researchers 66,000 square feet of space in the main building. Adjacent to TSMRI is a heated warehouse and free-standing wet lab building. On the NOAA campus is the University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (UAF) building which enables close professional collaborations and sharing of capabilities. TSMRI provides filtered seawater to UAF and receives used seawater from UAF for sterilization and discharge. TSMRI has 33,000 square feet of laboratories capable of supporting lipid and hydrocarbon analysis, DNA extraction, ultra-cold storage, robotic genotyping, analysis of lipids, age and growth determinations, zooplankton processing and bioenergetics.
