Outreach & Extension
Maryland Sea Grant Extension, a partnership between Maryland Sea Grant and University of Maryland Extension, provides Maryland citizens with objective technical information on diverse issues related to the Chesapeake Bay and the state's coastal waters.
Serving as a bridge between university-based research and its potential users, the Maryland Sea Grant Extension Program brings together the experience and expertise of specialists in aquaculture, seafood technology, marine economics, community planning, science education, watershed protection and restoration, water quality, and related fields to offer information, instruction, and advice to a range of stakeholders. The Sea Grant Extension Program's cadre of specialists conduct research, facilitate workshops and training seminars, produce targeted publications and videos, and develop websites and other media.
Maryland Sea Grant Extension's efforts span four focus areas:
- Aquaculture for food and restoration
- Coastal water quality
- Coastal communities and economies
