On a thin strip of land in Terrebonne Parish, researchers with the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium study the problems facing coastal Louisiana, the Gulf of Mexico and ocean ecosystems. But with its location outside the levee system, the marine lab has become ground zero for the very issues it is tasked with studying.
