Gloucester Marine Station

The University of Massachusetts Amherst Gloucester Marine Station is working with a range of partners to advance community resilience, sustainable fisheries and discover blue economy opportunities on the North Shore with far-reaching applications in Massachusetts, New England and beyond.

Since January 2018 a process to re-envision what the Gloucester Marine Station should be for the North Shore, for UMass, and as a partner to other coastal and marine ecological and industry interests has resulted in:

  • NEW STAFF MEMBERS
    Our research programs, course offerings and technical capabilities are growing to enhance and leverage existing capacity within the UMass system.
  • STRATEGIC PLANNING
    Through a National Science Foundation FSML award, our five-year plan is being finalized with input from stakeholders, UMass faculty and external reviewers.
  • INFRASTRUCTURE UPDATES
    We have updated our infrastructure to better serve researchers, students and partners, with more on deck!
