UF|IFAS Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory

The Laboratory is part of the University's Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences. It is located in Ruskin, Florida, approximately 20 miles south of Tampa in the heart of the tropical ornamental aquaculture industry. Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory (TAL) was created in 1996 from an industry-driven initiative and cooperation of UF and federal, state, and county representatives. The facility maintains strong working relationships with the Florida Tropical Fish Farms Association, the Florida Aquaculture Association, and other producer-based organizations. The mission of TAL is to enhance the understanding of tropical, ornamental aquaculture through research and education. The Laboratory performs applied research, fish disease diagnostic services, and extension education programs and promotes professionalism in Florida's tropical aquaculture industry.
