Sea Grant Education


Sea Grant educators provide valuable leadership in marine and aquatic science education activities throughout the nation, playing a leading role in K‐12, undergraduate, graduate, professional, technical and public education in coastal communities. Education programs are designed to inform citizens in coastal and Great Lakes communities and help prepare the next generation of professionals involved with our nation’s coastal resources, communities and economies. Sea Grant’s education portfolio includes undergraduate and graduate education, teacher education, K-12 curriculum development, fellowships, informal education for the general public, special training programs for industry and much more. Educators work closely with universities, the NOAA Office of Education, the National Marine Educators Association and other partners to develop formal education programs, workforce training and professional education programs.

Sea Grant Celebrates National Fishing and Boating Week

The sun is shining and the water is calm: what better way to spend a warm summer day than dropping anchor, kicking back and casting a line? Every year, tens of millions of people flock to U.S. coasts to enjoy recreational fishing and boating. Sea Grant supports the recreational fishing and boating enthusiasts and industries by providing resources that teach people learn how to fish and boat, help boaters and anglers determine when and where to go on the water, how to get the most out of their excursions while staying safe, and how to protect the environment so future generations can enjoy the same experiences.
