RESEARCH

Image: A researcher works in his lab.Economic and community development considerations are key elements of most Louisiana Sea Grant research projects. Often, Sea Grant provides "seed" money for innovative projects that later, with additional support from industry or other research agencies, results in solutions to critical problems or provides important economic benefits through new or enhanced products, processes, or services. Most projects are funded for two years.

Core research projects address four issues identified as especially pertinent to state, regional, and national needs: Healthy Ecosystems and Habitats; Resilient Communities and Economics; Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture; and Education and Workforce Development.

Program development projects address issues such as environmental crises and allow scientists to pursue unanticipated research discoveries or expand an existing project beyond Sea Grant’s normal two-year fiscal cycle for research.

Through special research initiatives, scientists throughout the Sea Grant network address coastal and marine priorities of national economic and ecological significance. Frequently, researchers from several institutions and disciplines collaborate on one project, leveraging Sea Grant resources — both financial and scientific.
