Georgia Sea Grant is part of a national program within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The program supports research, education and outreach in order to bring a balanced approach to land use, economic development and ecosystem health on the coast. This includes supporting environmental and economic health in coastal Georgia by helping improve public resource policy, encouraging far-sighted economic and fisheries decisions, anticipating vulnerabilities to change and educating citizens to be wise stewards of the coastal environment.
