Maine Sea Grant, Cooperative Extension, University of Maine

Data Center Description
The Maine Sea Grant receives funding from the University of Maine and from the
U.S. Department of Commerce, through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration. The mission of Maine Sea Grant is to play a leadership role in
marine science and education and to promote their use in the sustainable
development, management, and stewardship of marine and coastal resources.
There are many volunteer opportunities available through the program (see
http://www.seagrant.umaine.edu/extension/ecohealth/volunteer.htm).

Maine Sea Grant collaborates with communities to address problems and respond
to opportunities in three major areas: ecosystem health, coastal communities,
aquaculture, and fisheries. A more detailed description of Maine Sea Grant's
programs is included in the strategic plan for 2006-2010, developed with
guidance from the Policy Advisory Committee.
