A note to prospective students:

Pursuing a graduate degree in fisheries science can be an exciting and demanding step forward in your career. Ideally, prospective students will demonstrate enthusiasm, a background in fisheries, ecology, or a related field, an understanding of the research process and basic statistics, the ability to think critically, and be a good team member. In particular, much of our research is quanitative and computer-based - skills in modeling, statistics, and computer programming are often necessary. If you think this describes you, please look over our research projects and some of our recent publications. Then, please feel free to contact me with a description of your background and research interests. Fisheries graduate students at CBL typically matriculate through the Ecological Systems Foundation in the Marine Estuarine and Environmental Science program (MEES). UMCES is an AA/EOE/ADA employer; women and minorities encouraged to apply.
