Alaska Sea Grant, School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, University of Alaska - Fairbanks
Data Center Description
Alaska Sea Grant is a university-based program that is part of a national network of Sea Grant programs in all the coastal and Great Lakes states.
We fund marine research, provide education and advisory services, and distribute information about Alaska's seas and coasts.
We provide funding to scientific researchers and graduate students. Our advisory service is for fishermen, boat operators, tour guides, the seafood industry, and pretty much anyone else who makes a living from or enjoys the waters of Alaska. We produce and distribute a variety of publications for the general public, K-12 educators, fishermen, and others. And (of course) we also publish the results of Sea Grant sponsored research.
Our scientists, marine advisory agents, resource specialists, and communicators are dedicated to understanding how our marine ecosystem works, finding ways to benefit from and maintain the bounty of our beautiful seas and coasts, and passing that knowledge on to you.
