Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council

In 1971, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed legislation that created the Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC). The CRMC is a management agency with regulatory functions. Its primary responsibility is for the preservation, protection, development and where possible the restoration of the San Francisco Estuary Partnership. The San Francisco Estuary Partnership is a coalition of resource agencies, non-profits, citizens, and scientists working to protect, restore, and enhance water quality and fish and wildlife habitat in and around the San Francisco Bay Delta Estuary.

Rhode Island Sea Grant

Rhode Island Sea Grant is located at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, and funds research at other institutions throughout the state. It is also home to one of only four Sea Grant Legal Programs in the country, and the only one in the Northeast, located at Roger Williams University School of Law.    Rhode Island Sea Grant funds research that addresses coastal ecosystem and fisheries issues. Research goals include: characterizing and quantifying dynamics of change in coastal ecosystems; improving understanding of effects of contaminants on coastal ecosystems; developing techniques and indicators to characterize the sources, pathways, and effects of nutrients, toxins, and biocontaminants; exploring links between ecosystem-based management and fisheries management; determining industry and consumer seafood priorities; and increasing knowledge of biology and ecology of valuable species.

Social and Environmental Research Institute (SERI)

The Social and Environmental Research Institute (SERI) conducts applied research on a broad range of social and environmental issues, with a focus in three primary categories: public participation and decision making; human dimensions of risk and environment; and vulnerability and environmental change. While much of their historic work applied these research themes to oil spills and nuclear energy, many current projects apply the institute's expertise to climate change and adaptation.
