Serving both Sonoma and Marin Counties, the Marine Science program promotes the wise use of coastal and marine resources. Technical assistance is provided to the commercial fishing and aquaculture industries, seafood processors, and retailers through the National Sea Grant Program. UCCE/Sea Grant regularly conducts public workshops for both large and small agricultural landowners which address water quality, fish habitat needs, and land use. The program also focuses its efforts on aquaculture, fisheries, fish habitat, and the problem of non-indigenous species.
California Sea Grant is the largest of 29 state programs in a national network dedicated to the understanding, conservation, and wise use of coastal and marine resources. The statewide program, which is administered by the University of California, draws on the talents of scientists and engineers at public and private universities, and works in partnership with industry, government, and the public. The National Sea Grant College Program is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce.
