2018-2020 Research Projects

Every two years, the Consortium asks researchers to submit proposals for the funding provided by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration through the National Sea Grant College Program.

Each project undergoes a rigorous peer review. The selected projects support critical research goals for our state and region.

Healthy Coastal Ecosystems

Research Vision: The ecological, social, and economic value of coastal and ocean ecosystem functions are documented and the resultant information and tools are delivered to state and local decision-makers, resource managers, and interested public.

Sustainable Coastal Development and Economy

Research Vision: Decision-makers apply science-based information and tools to manage increased population growth and development resulting in sustainable communities, thriving economies, and healthy natural resources.

Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture

Research Vision: Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture in the coastal region are economically vibrant and are compatible with changing demographics, business development, regulatory environments, and long-term conservation of natural and cultural resources.
