From beneficial marine microbes to massive hurricane dangers, Sea Grant's research increases our knowledge of the natural, cultural, and social environments. Follow these links to some of our major research projects.
 

The Coastal and Ocean Landscape – FY16-18
The ecological and economic value of coastal and ocean ecosystem processes are documented and resultant information and tools are delivered to state and local decisionmakers, resource managers, and interested public.

Sustainable Coastal Development and Economy – FY16-18
Decisionmakers are aware of the impacts of population growth and development on coastal and ocean ecosystems, and apply science-based management tools and techniques to balance this growth with resource conservation.

Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture – FY16-18
Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the coastal region that is compatible with changing demographics, business development, regulatory environments, and long-term conservation of natural and cultural resources.

Hazard Resilience in Coastal Communities – FY16-18
Coastal residents, communities, and businesses understand the risks and vulnerabilities associated with both chronic and episodic coastal natural hazard events, and are prepared for and able to recover from them with minimal disruption to social, economic, and natural systems.
