Welcome to Oregon State University’s Coastal Oregon Marine Experiment Station (COMES) located in beautiful Astoria, OR!

The OSU Seafood laboratory is the only seafood experiment station on the West Coast of the contiguous United States.  We are affiliated with COMES-Newport and the OSU Department of Food Science & Technology.

The mission of the OSU Seafood Lab is to improve seafood through:

  1. Research and Development
  2. Extension Service to both the Fishing and Seafood Processing Industry
  3. Graduate Student Research, Training and Instruction.



The OSU Surimi Forum and Surimi School is hosted by the OSU Seafood Lab each year in April and attracts over 120-130 attendees from around the world.
