Marine Lab

Clownfish breeding genetics are being studied in the Marine Lab.
Facility Type

Welcome to SUNY Morrisville Marine Lab. In this laboratory space, we have several small-scale recirculating saltwater systems for the study of marine organisms. The marine ornamental trade consists of thousand of species and we are interested in specific breeding protocols and larval care. Projects in this space are student-driven research projects. Current projects include lined seahorse larval development, clownfish breeding genetics, orchid dottyback breeding, and larval feeding.

For a tour, please contact Dr. Elisa Livengood.
