A consortium led by the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium and the University of Southern Mississippi has been awarded a four-year National Science Foundation cooperative agreement to operate one of three new $106 million Regional Class Research Vessels, state and federal officials announced Tuesday. The National Science Foundation is expected to spend at least $318 million to build three new vessels, which are being constructed by Gulf Island Fabrication in Houma. The three ships will be operated by the Gulf RCRV Consortium (a partnership between LUMCON and USM), Oregon State University and the University of Rhode Island. “Louisiana’s marine researchers cherish opportunities like this one, which can yield solutions to some of our most challenging issues, including hurricane tracking and offshore fishery expansion,” Commissioner of Higher Education Kim Hunter Reed said.
