Meet Texas Sea Grant Experts


John Jacob, Ph.D.

Team leader for the Texas Coastal Watershed Program - The Texas Coastal Watershed Program provides information to local governments and citizens about the impacts of land use on watershed health and water quality on the Texas coast. 


"We’re doing all this because we depend on the land and clean water...I want my grandkids to have a bay where shrimp and shellfish thrive. I want them to see wetlands, partly for their beauty and partly for their role in keeping bays healthy."

Christine Hale

Oil Spill Science Outreach Specialist - Christine serves as a link between researchers who conduct oil spill science, through the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative, and the multiple stakeholder groups that need this information to make more informed decisions.


"I take the science directly to people whose livelihoods depend on a healthy Gulf."

Gary Graham

Marine Fisheries Specialist - Gary primarily focuses on commercial fisheries bycatch issues by helping Texas fishermen meet gear regulations.


"Helping people. It’s just that simple. Interacting with people and helping them, that’s the heart of Sea Grant."
