Marine Science/Sea Grant
Dr. Paul Olin, PhD. - Academic Coordinator, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD
Serving both Sonoma and Marin Counties, the Marine Science program promotes the wise use of coastal and marine resources. Technical assistance is provided to the commercial fishing and aquaculture industries, seafood processors, and retailers through a collaboration between UCCE, California Sea Grant and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego (SIO).
SIO/Sea Grant regularly conduct public workshops for both large and small agricultural landowners which address water quality, fish habitat needs, and land use. The program also focuses its efforts on aquaculture, fisheries, fish habitat, and the problem of non-indigenous species.
California Sea Grant sponsors marine research, extension services, and education activities to support the management, conservation, and enhancement of those resources for the benefit of current and future generations. The largest of the 31 Sea Grant programs, California Sea Grant draws on the talents of scientists and engineers at public and private universities throughout the state. It is administered by the University of California and is based at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego. It is also part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association's (NOAA's) National Sea Grant program.
