The School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences (SFOS) was created by the University of Alaska Board of Regents in 1987 from existing entities housed at several campuses and placed under a single umbrella to be administered as a unit within the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

The purpose was to strengthen and unify the programs in fisheries and ocean sciences. The School has since developed a strong history of regional and world-class research, excellent graduate education, and outstanding service to the State and the nation.

The School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences is one of the most diverse schools of the University of Alaska in both geographic distribution and academic mission. The seven divisions, distributed throughout much of Alaska, encompass an enormous subject range. In its cumulative form, the School achieves excellence through research, education, and public outreach.
