ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon State University Seafood Lab in Astoria is one of a few seafood experiment centers on the West Coast.

The Daily Astorian reports (https://is.gd/SviWCj ) the OSU lab focuses on production, quality and safety.

The center is directed by Christina Mireles-DeWitt, a former research assistant at the lab who moved from Oklahoma to take the helm in 2010 as director and a professor of food science and technology.

Mireles-DeWitt said there is often the misconception that the lab is involved in live fish, hatchery or environmental research. But it falls under the university’s Food Science and Technology department and was established more than 75 years ago to help the fishing and seafood processing industries.
