Summary of Stone Lab students and scholarships from 2006 to 2014.

Stone Laboratory, founded in 1895 and located on the 6.5-acre Gibraltar Island in the harbor at Put-in-Bay, Ohio, is Ohio’s Lake Erie laboratory, part of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program, the oldest freshwater biological field station in the country, and the island campus of The Ohio State University. This report covers the 9-year period from 2006-14. Reports from previous years can be found on the program website at This has been a time of dramatic change and dramatic improvement in the program and in our facilities. All facility improvements were designed to last a minimum of 40 years. The program is on a steep upward trajectory and is much better today than it was in January 2006. Furthermore, facility, staff, and programmatic improvements make it highly likely that the upward trajectory will continue and the program will be even better in the future. The program (Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Lab) has also been reviewed five times since 2000 by teams of experts from the National Sea Grant College Program and been very highly ranked in every review. This report focuses in detail on Stone Laboratory. Ohio Sea Grant results and activities are covered very briefly. More detail on Ohio Sea Grant results and activities can be found in annual reports prepared for the National Sea Grant College Program and in reports prepared for the five national reviews mentioned above. Those reports are also available on the program website.
