Welcome to Alaska Sea Grant — supporting wise use and conservation of Alaska's seas and coasts through research, education, and extension.
Thomas Farrugia, a graduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will spend a year learning how the federal government makes national marine policy and manages marine resources.
Alaska Sea Grant invites proposals for coastal resilience research, including but not limited to: climate change adaptation, coastal processes studies, resilience from natural hazards, technology development, and resilient coastal communities, businesses, and industries, including fisheries, seafood processing, and tourism. See the Announcement of Funding Opportunity for details and guidelines.
Torie Baker, Marine Advisory Program agent in Cordova, was profiled on the National Sea Grant website as part of a series on Safe Boating Week.
