Social Science Highlights and Impacts

Examples of Sea Grant social science impacts include

  • Maine Sea Grant research developed ways for fishermen and other marine resource users to participate in ocean mapping and influence planning efforts.

  • MIT Sea Grant helped local fishermen earn more by putting safe and sustainably-caught seafood straight onto the dinner plates of Massachusetts citizens using a direct-to-customer distribution model.

  • Coastal decision makers and property owners are benefiting from the Wisconsin Coastal Atlas, which integrates geospatial Great Lakes data.

  • Washington Sea Grant developed indicators of human well-being that are used in integrated ecosystem assessments that affect management decisions.
