NOAA Aquaculture Funding Opportunities
The National Sea Grant College Program has released three federal funding opportunities (FFO) to support research and industry engagement to advance U.S. aquaculture.

This is a significant opportunity for continued aquaculture development in South Carolina and the Southeast region, as we anticipate a total of $13.5M being made available to support these efforts. There is a quick turn-around time for the letters of intent (LOI) associated with each FFO, as outlined below. We encourage anyone with interest to reach out to us to discuss these opportunities further.

View the summary of the opportunities on the National Sea Grant College Program's website.

Details for each of the three opportunities:
  1. Advanced Aquaculture Collaborative Programs
    $9,000,000 - LOI April 15, Full May 15

  2. Exploring New Aquaculture Opportunities
    $1,500,000 - LOI March 26, Full April 24

  3. Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research Needs in Aquaculture
    $3,000,000 - LOI April 2, Full May 1
We are required to take leadership for submissions under opportunities 1 and 2. We are, of course, willing to be involved in proposals to the National Sea Grant Office under opportunity 3 if our participation could be of benefit.

The Collaborative Program and New Opportunities calls require Sea Grant Program leadership and submission. Neither of these calls is intended to support a single, discrete research project. As outlined in the FFOs, they are intended to be broader projects that may involve research, but also require industry involvement, outreach and extension components, and increase the capacity of the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium to support ongoing and future research, extension, and science communication activities related to aquaculture.

Please review the FFOs, and think about topic areas and how you may want to be involved.

Please contact Rick DeVoe or Susannah Sheldon with programmatic questions or Ryan Bradley with administrative and financial questions at (843) 953-2078.
