Sea Grant Liaisons integrate research and end-user needs by connecting Sea Grant extension expertise with science, products, and services from NOAA labs and other publicly supported scientific research programs. In addition to leveraging Sea Grant funds through shared federal/non-federal support of a new extension agent, the liaisons provide a pipeline between new research and community audiences.
