Abstract:
The Pamlico Marine Laboratory, located near Aurora, studies the waters of Pamlico River and other waters of coastal North Carolina. The laboratory is the coastal research station of the Department of Zoology of North Carolina State University. Work at the laboratory began in 1965, under the direction of Dr. Donald B. Horton. The ecological studies attempt to understand and describe the complex relationships between organisms in the river, including the commercially important fish, shrimp, and crabs, and their aquatic environment.
