Building Bridges Between Science and People

Pennsylvania Sea Grant serves as a bridge between science and the people who manage, conserve, and enjoy Pennsylvania’s waterways and lakes. We are one of 34 National Sea Grant College programs, which are federal and university partnerships located in Great Lakes and coastal states.

With support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Penn State University, and private and public grants, Pennsylvania Sea Grant conducts integrated research, outreach, education, and communications programs in the Lake Erie watershed, and in the Delaware and Susquehanna River Basins.

Strategic Plan

Getting from point A to point B takes strategic planning, thoughtful review, and creative collaboration. Pennsylvania Sea Grant’s four-year plan informs research requests for proposals, outreach topics, and education activities. A statewide advisory committee, staff, and community members all provide input on those topics and issues, which also align with the overarching focus areas laid out by the National Sea Grant College Program. Those focus areas are healthy coastal ecosystems, resilient communities and economies, environmental literacy and workforce development, and sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.

We strive to make access to research, outreach, education, and employment opportunities available to everyone, regardless of race, color, religion, place of origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic status, disability, or veteran status.
