Sea Grant Extension

Through educational programs and practical assistance, Sea Grant Extension serves Louisiana’s coastal population – about 70 percent of the state’s residents. Sea Grant extension agents, who live in the coastal areas they serve, and extension specialists, who are based on the LSU campus, connect residents to university research in four areas: Coastal & Wetland Management, Natural Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Seafood Products.
