broad cross-section of the state's population -- scientists, educators,
fishermen, aquaculturists, legislators, recreational boaters,
and many others whose lives are linked to coastal land and water
-- depends upon the information made available by Louisiana Sea
Grant College Program. Disseminating information through advisory
outreach is the communications staff’s primary purpose.
A second, equally important
Communications purpose is establishing the identity of Louisiana
Sea Grant as a resource for information on coastal and marine
years, change related to severe coastal land loss and declining
fisheries have caused people from many walks of life to search
for ways to recover economically and environmentally and to improve
circumstances for their own and future generations. They need
science-based information to make effective decisions as they
search for ways to create jobs, improve resources, and educate
future generations of scientists, teachers and business people.
Some of these people rely on popular, general media to secure
such information; others use professional, peer-reviewed publications.
Louisiana Sea Grant's Communications staff develops and distributes
information through all types of publications, Web pages, conference
displays, audio, and video products to supply information to Louisiana's
Sea Grant publications may be ordered from the Louisiana Sea Grant
Communications Office, 101 Sea Grant Building, Louisiana State

Many of these
publications and additional publications on similar subjects may
