Aquatic Animal & Tissue Supply

The Marine Resources Department (MRD) collects, maintains, and distributes, for educational and scientific purposes, approximately 200 locally available aquatic plant and animal species. The Marine Resources facility allows long-term husbandry and availability of many species normally out of season to field collecting. The MRD provides worldwide shipment of many organisms, as well as tissues and fluids. For information about availability or shipping contact the MRD at (508) 289-7375 or (508) 289-7477.
