Research Publications

Maryland Sea Grant has funded scientific research relevant to the Chesapeake Bay and the Maryland residents who conserve, enjoy, and make their living from it.

The funded projects advance scientific knowledge through the publication of peer-reviewed journal articles. You may search these publications by keyword and year of publication.

Publications prior to 2003 can be accessed through the National Sea Grant Library.
