Program director Steve Brandt called it “a modern, engaging site that reflects Sea Grant’s mission and our status as an integrated program of research, education and public engagement.”
Visitors will find current news about Sea Grant’s ocean and coastal science initiatives, announcements of grant and fellowship opportunities, and profiles of Sea Grant-supported research and student scholars. Content ranges from short videos about marine safety and seafood buying to in-depth features about critical topics such as tsunami and climate change preparedness, marine spatial planning and invasive species.
The site provides access to hundreds of Sea Grant publications and videos – many of them free.
The site is built on the Drupal content management system, and was developed by Sea Grant communications, led by webmaster Pat Kight, in cooperation with Oregon State University’s Web Communications and Central Web Services units.
