The NOAA National Sea Grant College Program will award US$11 million in grants for 22 projects to further advance the development of a sustainable marine and coastal aquaculture industry in the US.
The research will address specific priorities of the 2018 Sea Grant National Aquaculture Initiative including: supporting the development of emerging systems or technologies that will advance aquaculture in the US; developing and implementing actionable methods of communicating accurate, science-based information about the benefits and risks of US marine aquaculture to the public; and increasing the resiliency of aquaculture systems to natural hazards and changing conditions.
The projects, which will be conducted over a three-year period, include a 50 per cent match by non-federal partners. One hundred proposals were submitted requesting a total in US$48 million in federal grant funds.
