Coastal Science for the Granite State

Coastal and marine resources are experiencing unprecedented stresses. Increasing coastal populations, development pressure and habitat loss, commercial fishing pressure, polluted runoff and invasive species all threaten the 95,000 miles of U.S. coastline. New Hampshire Sea Grant works to address these issues through research, education, and outreach in the Granite State.
