Connecticut Sea Grant
The Connecticut Sea Grant College Program is a unique partnership between the nation's universities and its primary ocean agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The University of Connecticut is our State's Sea Grant College.
Connecticut Sea Grant (CTSG) collaborates with maritime industries and coastal communities to identify needs, and fund research, outreach, and educational activities that have special relevance to Connecticut and Long Island Sound.
Our mission is to work towards achieving healthy coastal and marine ecosystems and consequent public benefits by supporting integrated locally and nationally relevant research, outreach and education programs in partnership with stakeholders.
Sea Grant is celebrating its 50th anniversary year through March 2017. We're using this occasion to tell people more about the services we provide to universities, communities, coastal and Great Lakes states, and the nation.
