More information about specific Resource Enhancement and Utilization Technologies research programs can be found in the Issue Papers.
- The Hatchery Reform Science Program's research focuses on existing and developing challenges associated with captive rearing, hatchery technology, and behavioral ecology of salmon to sustain and rebuild endangered or depleted stocks.
- The Marine Enhancement and Aquaculture Research Program develops information and technology needed to test culture-based rebuilding of depleted marine species and manage environmentally sound aquaculture.
- The Integrative Fish Biology Program develops fundamental biological understanding of fish development, growth, reproduction, smolt quality, fish health and disease diagnosis and control.
- The Full Utilization Program improves fish processing methods to more fully utilize each fish caught--to relieve pressure on the resource, reduce waste released into habitat, and to benefit the fishing industry.
