New study from California Sea Grant researchers shows that during dry periods, a small amount of water can be enough to keep young salmon alive during the hot, dry summer months.
Even small amounts of running water—less than a gallon per second—could mean the difference between life or death for juvenile coho salmon in coastal California streams, according to a new study published in the journal Transactions of the American Fisheries Society.
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.
Lake Champlain Sea Grant earned the honor as an Institutional Program for demonstrating excellence in research, education and public service dedicated to the environmentally responsible management and development in the Nation’s marine, coastal and Great Lakes resources. As a Sea Grant Institute, Lake Champlain Sea Grant is eligible for additional federal funding and is expected to increase the research portfolio of the program.
Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant-funded research finds plastic microfibers in the water, sediment and fish of three major rivers that flow into Lake Michigan.
The Stakes are Rising: Lessons on Engaging Coastal Communities on Climate Adaptation in Southern California was published in the Cities and the Environment journal in November 2017
USC Sea Grant has worked with communities in southern California for over six years on climate adaptation planning. They analyzed their efforts and published the analysis in the Cities and the Environment Journal.
