UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant design applied research, extension and outreach projects to address current issues faced by our coastal communities.
For over four decades, Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant have worked with commercial fishing families and seafood producers to address issues faced by coastal communities. UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant seeks practical, innovative solutions that protect marine resources and sustain local livelihoods.
Our goal is to increase communication and collaboration between fishermen, scientists, managers, conservationists, seafood dealers, regulators and the public. UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant also provide education to ensure seafood safety and aid consumers in making seafood choices that improve their health. These endeavors help raise awareness about Georgia-harvested seafood so all residents reap nutritional and economic benefits from this local resource.
