Maryland Sea Grant College
Maryland Sea Grant is administered by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. Funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the State of Maryland, Maryland Sea Grant forms part of a network of more than 34 university-based Sea Grant programs around the country.

Established in 1977, Maryland Sea Grant has been a dedicated leader in efforts to protect and restore Maryland's coastal resources. In addition to the Maryland Sea Grant Extension Program, Sea Grant also addresses the scientific, economic, and social challenges facing the Chesapeake and coastal bays through research, education, and communication efforts. 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, and make their living from the Chesapeake and coastal bays.
