Our Communications Staff and Products


From its start in 1977, Maryland Sea Grant has sought to show those who live and Maryland and beyond how important — and exciting — Chesapeake Bay science can be.

Our communications staff works to inform the public about scientific discoveries and the researchers who make them, findings that can help to protect and restore the Bay and Maryland’s coastal waters. We strive to provide scientifically accurate information with context and depth that nonscientists can understand and enjoy.

We use a variety of media to tell these stories:
