Grand Isle Marine Lab

Lab Director: Myron Fischer

Located in the center of Grand Isle, this state of the art facility will serve as a research hub for LDWF biologists, as well as university research and cooperative efforts with other states.

The lab complex consists of a 12,000 square foot laboratory containing a wet lab, library, conference room, offices and many other work areas.  An adjacent dormitory building has 13 bedrooms, two bunk rooms, bath facilities, a kitchen, dining and entertainment area, large conference room and a laboratory for visiting researchers.  A covered boathouse has slips to accommodate 14 vessels and the underside of the lab building serves as a hatchery area for both shellfish and finfish.  Also on site is a large maintenance area. 

Since its opening, the lab staff has conducted individual and group tours of the facility, hosted local and national media representatives, and provided accommodations for university researchers from the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, LSU, Tulane, University of Louisiana Lafayette, University of Florida and UNO.  Other individuals engaged in short-duration fieldwork are also accommodated on a regular basis.
