Alaska Sea Grant Research
Alaska Sea Grant is charged by Congress to conduct scientific research that enhances the wise use and conservation of our coastal, marine, and fisheries resources.
To that end, Alaska Sea Grant funds research through academic institutions, government and nongovernmental groups, industry and others, with the overall goal of creating knowledge about social and economic aspects of Alaska's seas and coasts, seafood science, fish genetics, and shellfish aquaculture. For information on research recently funded by Alaska Sea Grant, please see our project directory or browse our research project database.
For information on fellowships for graduate students that can be applied for through Alaska Sea Grant, see our graduate student fellowships page.
One such opportunity is the Sea Grant Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship in Washington, DC, which is suited for graduate students interested in national policy decisions. The fellowship deadline usually falls at the end of February each year.
AKCRRAB is a coalition of university, state and federal scientists, fishermen and Alaska Native groups investigating the potential for hatchery enhancement to rebuild stocks of Kodiak red king crab and Pribilof Island blue king crab for the benefit of Alaska fishermen and coastal communities.
