Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center
The Thad Cochran Marine Aquaculture Center is an advanced research unit housed at The University of Southern Mississippi. We are centrally located in the northern Gulf of Mexico in Ocean Springs, Mississippi at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory’s Cedar Point research site. Our research focuses on alleviating the bottlenecks that constrain the production of marine species. We work with industry, government and non-profit organizations to advance sustainable aquaculture on land and in coastal and marine environments.
