Wisconsin Sea Grant
Wisconsin Sea Grant is a statewide program of basic and applied research, education, and outreach and technology transfer dedicated to the stewardship and sustainable use of the nation's Great Lakes and ocean resources. The program's primary areas of focus are in aquaculture, aquatic invasive species, coastal engineering, marine and aquatic science education, fisheries, geographic information systems, habitat restoration, water quality and water safety. Research projects focused on climate change adaptation of coastal communities are being done on behalf of the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network, with funding from NOAA's Climate Program Office.
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.
