The Marine Team is an interdepartmental collaborative of OSU scientists committed to training students in marine and estuarine field studies in the Pacific Northwest. Being based at Newport's Hatfield Marine Science Center, we  operate independent monitoring and research projects to engage student learning and provide hands-on experiences. Additionally, the Marine Team provides critical support to the community of graduates, undergraduates, agency staff and OSU faculty requiring assistance with ongoing research projects. Currently, we are in need of funds to continue independent student research trawl and seine surveys in Yaquina Bay, and maintain the 21' whaler we use in our operations. Please consider keeping this group afloat for another decade of student marine research and training!
