Florida Sea Grant
Florida Sea Grant research invests in sustaining coastal economies and environments. With stakeholder-driven strategic planning and implementation processes, research focuses on issues of practical importance to Floridians. A state-wide network of extension specialists link objective science outputs with 'in the water' solutions. Florida Sea Grant strategically focuses on aquaculture, biotechnology, coastal hazards, coastal management & policy, ecosystem health, fisheries, and seafood safety with two broad program areas of graduate education and marine education.
The National Sea Grant College Program (Sea Grant) works to create and maintain healthy coastal environments and economies. The Sea Grant network includes 32 programs based at top universities in every coastal and Great Lakes state, Puerto Rico, and Guam. The programs of the Sea Grant network work together to help citizens understand, conserve and better utilize America’s coastal, ocean and Great Lakes resources. One of four national strategic priorities through 2013 is to improve the resilience of coastal communities to hazards, including the effects of climate change. NOAA Sea Grant plays local and national roles to inform policy and management, help communities prepare for climate impacts, and support economic resilience and opportunity. See the National Sea Grant College Program organization entry for more information.
