Sponsoring Agency: Department of Commerce 

Type of Fund: Grant

Deadline: February 3, 2022

Details:

The National Sea Grant College Program was enacted by U.S. Congress in 1966 (amended in 2020, Public Law 116-221) to support leveraged federal and state partnerships that harness the intellectual capacity of the nation’s universities and research institutions to solve problems and generate opportunities in coastal communities.

Subject to the availability of funding, Sea Grant anticipates approximately $4,000,000 will be available for research projects and programs that will develop and refine early stage propagation strategies (e.g., reproduction, hatchery, and/or nursery strategies) for aquaculture species (defined below) to supply on-growing operations.

Successful proposals will address topical needs (described below) and integrate research and extension. Proposals are sought that will support broad, non-proprietary research to address critical gaps with respect to early-stage propagation strategies for aquaculture species; make that information available to U.S. aquaculture businesses, and include Sea Grant aquaculture extension personnel and preferably industry stakeholders.

These investments are consistent with Sea Grant’s focus area of Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture (SFA) and the Sea Grant Network’s 10-year Aquaculture Vision, both of which support NOAA and Department of Commerce aquaculture goals. Proposals must include funding (federal or match) for Sea Grant extension personnel as collaborators. Industry stakeholder participation/involvement in projects is strongly encouraged.
