From fisheries management to marsh restoration, Sea Grant makes discoveries, develops new resources
Research is an essential component of Sea Grant’s work in coastal and Great Lakes communities, supporting scientists from hundreds of institutions. Here are just a few of Sea Grant’s recent research publications that are making a splash.
Hawai'i Sea Grant's Homeowner's Handbook to Prepare for Natural Hazards has been helping homeowners on the islands and beyond prepare for disasters since 2007.
The National Marine Fisheries Service-Sea Grant Joint Fellowship program supports students pursuing doctoral degrees in population and ecosystem dynamics as well as marine resource economics. The program is a focused workforce development effort to train highly qualified professionals in areas of critical need for NOAA’s science-based approach to fisheries management.
Sea Grant helps coastal communities prepare for and adapt to sea-level rise
Recent work from Washington and Hawai'i Sea Grant programs highlights Sea Grant's role in preparing coastal communities across the country for rising sea levels.
Sea Grant works with coastal communities across the U.S., Puerto Rico and Guam to improve community resilience to coastal storms. Sea Grant engages in vulnerability assessments, resilience planning and social science initiatives to learn from previous storms and better prepare for future storms.
