Sea Grant Research Grows the Aquaculture Industry
In this installment of our continuing #SeafoodMonth festivities, we look at how Sea Grant investments in research have advanced the domestic aquaculture industry.
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.
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.
