Oregon Sea Grant
Oregon Sea Grant supports an integrated program of research, education and public outreach to help people understand, responsibly use, and conserve ocean and coastal resources. Program activities are conducted in several interdependent and critical topical areas including healthy coastal ecosystems, sustainable coastal development, safe and sustainable seafood supply, hazard resilient coastal communities, and marine education. The program is committed to: 1) Improving human health and safety related to ocean and coastal use, 2) Promoting social progress and economic vitality, and 3) Enhancing the sustainability of coastal ecosystems.
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.
