The Delaware Aquaculture Resource Center (DARC) is part of the Sea Grant Marine Advisory Service at the University of Delaware's College of Earth Ocean and Environment (CEOE). The resource center, located on the second floor of the Cannon Laboratory at the Hugh R. Sharp Marine Studies Campus in Lewes, Delaware, maintains an aquaculture "gray literature" library collection of more than 1500 titles consisting of catalogs, extension fact sheets, technical reports, periodicals, videos and other useful materials. This collection has been developed with particular emphasis on obtaining practical information on all aspects of aquaculture applicable to Delaware and other states of the Mid-Atlantic region. The resource center is open to the public during normal business hours 8:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday to Friday. The center's collection of aquaculture information has been selected to complement rather than duplicate literature on aquaculture in the Marine Studies Library, also located on the second floor of the Cannon Laboratory. The Marine Studies library carries numerous scientific journals, proceedings, hard cover text and reference books provides electronic access to review the University of Delaware Library system holdings on aquaculture, fisheries and other pertinent subjects. In combination, both collections provide Delawareans with a comprehensive, centralized source of general and technical aquaculture information. The resource center has available the following types of material:
