SAFS is involved in many collaborative partnerships with research programs and groups across the campus, the region, the nation, and the world. Learn more about our research programs (listed below) and the impact they have on scientific research.

In addition, SAFS faculty and NOAA Fisheries have a partnership to fund graduate students working on stock assessment and resource economics for fisheries management. Scientists at NOAA are also supporting the work of two of our faculty members, Chris Anderson and Trevor Branch, on these topics.
