SoMAS is well-equipped with vessels to accommodate the research needs of SoMAS faculty and regional natural resource agencies. The R/V Seawolf is ideally suited for extended research trips, large-scale oceanographic sampling, and trawling. The R/V Pritchard is an effective vessel for sampling near-shore bays and estuaries. Smaller research vessels are also available (e.g. R/V Privateer). For information on rates, please contact David Bowman.
