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 research fiscal cycle. Through special research initiatives, scientists throughout the Sea Grant network address coastal and marine priorities of national economic and ecological significance.
