Oysters in basket
Study evaluates the impact of ocean acidification on the fitness traits across multiple larval stages and between discrete oyster populations.
hand holding hundreds of small Pacific oyster larvae
This project evaluates the use of a habitat model, developed using geospatial raster layers of salinity, substrate, and elevation, in Yaquina Bay, Oregon to predict locations of Olympia oyster presence.
razor clams
Researchers quantified microplastic types, concentrations, anatomical burdens, geographic distribution and temporal differences in Pacific oysters and Pacific razor clams from 15 Oregon coast sites.
plastic trash on beach
Researchers summarize the current knowledge, identify data gaps, and provide future research directions for addressing microplastics effects in commercially valuable North American fishery species.


hand holding hundreds of small Pacific oyster larvae
In this study, researchers use the delay in shell formation associated with exposure to CO2-acidified seawater to identify genes correlated with initial shell deposition.
juvenile salmon
This research shows nonanadromous Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) can extract map information from the geomagnetic field.
