Advanced Aquaculture Collaborative Programs

Sea Grant anticipates at least $9,000,000 will be available to support the establishment of collaborative programs to build the capacity of Sea Grant and its partners to advance aquaculture in areas where a foundation of knowledge and activity currently exists but where significant barriers to sustainable domestic marine and Great Lakes aquaculture remain. These collaborative programs will serve as geographic or topic-based hubs for fully integrated, transdisciplinary research, outreach and education that will provide broad, non-proprietary support and investment for building and/or enhancing an aquaculture industry. Letters of Intent – which must be submitted through the PI’s local Sea Grant program – are due to Louisiana Sea Grant by noon on April 15, 2019. Letters of Intent must be sent to Katie Lea at [email protected]. Full proposals are due by May 7, 2019 at 4:00 pm at www.laseagrantdb.orgYou MUST submit a LoI in order to submit a full proposal. All instructions and information needed to submit a full proposal will be on www.laseagrantdb.org. — see formal announcement for full details

Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research Needs in Aquaculture

The National Sea Grant Office anticipates around $3,000,000 will be available to support research to address critical gaps in social, behavioral and economic knowledge as it relates to U.S. aquaculture and the communities impacted and served by it. The initiative is informed by the National Strategic Plan for Federal Aquaculture Research; the Sea Grant 10-Year NOAA Sea Grant Aquaculture Vision; and previous research from federal, state and university scientists. Letters of Intent were due April 2, 2019. Full proposals are due May 1, 2019.  — see formal announcement for full details
