The Marine Fisheries Section headquarters is located at Ft. Wetherill in Jamestown, RI. The facility was created by refurbishing the existing historic buildings present at the fort. Its location provides easy access to Narragansett Bay and surrounding waters, and boasts a spectacular view. The Marine Fisheries Section also maintains the Coastal Fisheries Laboratory in South Kingstown, RI on Point Judith Pond. The lab is used as a platform for research and monitoring in the coastal ponds, shellfish restoration and aquatic education.
The mission of the Marine Fisheries Section is to research and monitor marine species to support the effective management of finfish and shellfish of commercial and recreational importance.
