The National Sea Grant Impacts and Accomplishments
The Sea Grant network enables NOAA and the nation to tap the best science, technology and expertise to balance human and environmental needs in coastal communities. Sea Grant’s alliance with major research universities around the country provides access to thousands of scientists, students and engagement professionals. Sea Grant’s university‐based programs are fundamental to the development of the future scientists and resource managers needed to conduct research and to guide the responsible use and conservation of our nation’s coastal resources. With its strong research capabilities, local knowledge and on‐the‐ground workforce, Sea Grant provides an effective national network of unmatched ability to rapidly identify and capitalize on opportunities and to generate timely, practical solutions to real problems in real places.
