University of Maryland Extension

Aquaculture & MD Sea Grant

Maryland Sea Grant College draws on the talent and expertise of the state's universities and academic laboratories to foster innovative marine research, education, and outreach. In this way Maryland Sea Grant serves as a bridge between academic expertise and the needs of those who manage, conserve, enjoy, or make their living from the Chesapeake Bay.

The Maryland Sea Grant Program is developing and carrying out a range of effective research and educational programs in aquaculture. Through the work of its Aquaculture & Coastal Restoration Focus Team, Sea Grant Extension targets prospective producers, business owners, commercial harvesters, resource managers, students, and educators, informing them about issues from oyster gardening to sturgeon stocks, to nutrient remediation using aquatic plants.

As the MD Sea Grant Aquaculture Business Specialist, Matt Parker can help you develop your business plan, perform economic feasibility analysis, and help identify potential funding programs for your project.

For more information on the Maryland Sea Grant Program, please contact Matt Parker, Aquaculture Business Specialist.
