Research Priorities from our Partners

Primary tabs

NH Sea Grant encourages prospective Sea Grant-funded researchers to consider collaborating with our partner organiziations and local agencies to address research needs that are relevant across New Hampshire's coastal and marine science community. We believe that strong partnerships can enhance the impact of research findings, which is consistent with our mission to promote responsible stewardship of New Hampshire’s ocean, coastal, and estuarine resources through integrated research, education, extension, and communication efforts.
