About the School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences
The University of Washington School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences (SAFS) is located in the southwest expansion area of the main campus. The school includes 30 faculty (and 16 emeritus faculty), 125 graduate and 100 undergraduate students, and about 90 administrative and research staff. The breadth and scope of SAFS encompasses programs for undergraduate and graduate teaching, research and service in basic and applied aquatic sciences with an emphasis on fisheries management and aquatic resource conservation. Our faculty, staff and students have access to myriad aquatic habitats and rich biological resources, and they are involved in interdisciplinary partnerships with other academic programs, as well as public and private organizations and environmental and regulatory agencies. They are continuing SAFS' long tradition of actively addressing major issues in the aquatic sciences.
