The mission of the National Center for Cool and Cold Water Aquaculture (NCCCWA) is to enhance the nation's aquaculture production by developing improved germplasm and technologies that increase farm efficiency, product quality, and environmental sustainability. Research focuses primarily on rainbow trout and encompasses genetics, genomics, physiology, aquatic animal health, and aquaculture engineering. Ultimately we envision growth in US aquaculture production that supports recreational activities and provides a healthy seafood option for consumers.
