Sea Grant partnership seeks research proposals focused on the co-existence of ocean energy with Northeast fishing and coastal communities
The Northeast Sea Grant Consortium, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office and Water Power Technologies Office, and NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center, announces a research funding opportunity to improve understanding of offshore renewable energy interactions with fishing and coastal communities to optimize ocean co-use. Pre-proposals are due May 14, 2021.
Researchers funded by N.H. Sea Grant describe the effects of rising groundwater levels from sea level rise on N.H.’s coastal roads.

New Hampshire Sea Grant has assisted with the assembly of an aquaculture raft that will provide year-round local fish and shellfish, as well as promote integrated multi-trophic aquaculture in New England.
Leaders who are helping their coastal communities adapt to sea level rise, increases in heavy precipitation and flooding need additional technical, human and financial assistance to do so, according to a report by a 2014 New Hampshire Sea Grant Doyle Fellow.
New Hampshire Sea Grant helped identify community adaptation strategies for the partner members of the Coastal Adaptation Workgroup (CAW), including a matrix of over 40 actions that communities can take to improve their climate adaptation capacity and implementation.
Since 2011, New Hampshire Sea Grant has helped to develop and contribute to “The Crow's Nest” blog about climate adaptation in New Hampshire, which is available on StormSmart Coasts, as a tool to communicate timely information about events and resources available to communities related to adaptation
The Watershed Game is an interactive tool that was developed by Minnesota Sea Grant as part of the Northland Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) program to help participants understand the connection between land use and water quality, as well as the degree to which implementing best management practices across land uses and sectors within a watershed is critical for reaching a water quality goal.
This is an outreach tool designed to guide communities through a range of strategies from landscape to plot level for water quality protection.
New Hampshire Sea Grant is heavily involved in research and extension efforts to address the best way to market seafood and keep fishermen financially afloat, including providing resources for direct market seafood sales and research into retailer and consumer preferences on seafood.
Sea Grant extension staff are tapping into a valuable resource — their out-of-state colleagues — to help generate new ideas for their own program’s efforts and improve collaboration within the nationwide Sea Grant network.
Steve Jones Associated Director of New Hampshire Sea Grant founded the Coastal Research Volunteers with the goal to provide volunteers with opportunities to engage in meaningful science and to benefit scientific research in the region. The program has been going strong for three years and is an overwhelming success, with volunteers helping researchers collect data they would otherwise be unable to collect.
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire are studying two illness-causing species of bacteria found in oysters to obtain a more detailed understanding of microbial life on the half-shell. The ultimate goal is to minimize risks to human health without having to close shellfish beds for long periods of time.
Through research, education and outreach, NOAA Sea Grant is addressing bycatch from the Gulf of Maine to the Gulf of Mexico to the Gulf of Alaska.
If you go to the grocery store to buy seafood, chances are that what you end up buying is imported – an 80 percent chance that it is imported, according to NOAA Fisheries Service.
