Sea Grant programs work in many ways to help coastal and Great Lake communities preserve their natural resources and marine economies for future generations. We help build, for example: Resilience and adaptations to storm surges and other coastal hazards, Healthy coastal ecosystems by improving water quality, and jobs and businesses in aquaculture and seafood.
Sea Grant often promotes progress in these areas by assisting local communities, planners, and officials to improve land use planning and outreach to residents.
