About the Barnacles

In 1928, UNH Professor C. Floyd Jackson established a Marine Zoological Laboratory on Appledore Island, one of the Isles of Shoals off Portsmouth, NH. Each summer, students flocked to the island to engage in field research until the outbreak of World War II led to the lab's closing. In the early 1970s, Cornell University professor John Kingsbury began to offer courses on Star Island, and by 1974, Cornell and UNH had jointly founded the Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore, still one of the nation's largest and best programs for undergraduate field research in marine science.

The intense experience of living in near isolation, without most of the amenities of the mainland, created strong bonds between these student that continue to this day. Alumni of the Marine Zoology Laboratory on Appledore Island from 1928 to 1941 are known as the Barnacles.
