The Tomasetti Coastal Environmental Science Lab at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore has two primary goals:

  • Understand the dynamics of and impacts to coastal marine systems under intensifying anthropogenic pressures

  • Strengthen coastal communities through advancements in policy, restoration, conservation, and aquaculture


We often focus on shellfish species and their habitats including: Argopecten irradians (bay scallops) in seagrass meadows, Callinectes sapidus (blue crabs) in estuaries, Crassostrea virginica (oysters) of natural and restored oyster reefs, and Placopecten magellanicus (sea scallops) in coastal shelf habitat.


We welcome and value students of all backgrounds. Join us in our mission to create a more sustainable future for our coastal communities! If you are interested in joining our team, please reach out – we would love to hear from you.
