Louisiana Sea Grant

Louisiana Sea Grant is a part of the National Sea Grant College Program, a federal-state cooperative and university-based initiative that focuses on research, outreach and education related to marine and coastal issues. There are 32 programs located in the coastal and Great Lakes states and Puerto Rico. Sea Grant programs work individually and in partnership to address major marine and coastal challenges.

In 1966, Congress established the National Sea Grant College Program, now administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The term “Sea Grant” was selected to underscore the similarity between this new program, focused on national coastal and marine resources, and the Land Grant program created more than a century earlier to develop agricultural resources. For information on the National Sea Grant Program, visit www.seagrant.noaa.gov.

Since its establishment in 1968, the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program has worked to promote stewardship of the state’s coastal resources through a combination of research, education and outreach projects critical to the cultural, economic and environmental health of Louisiana’s coastal zone.

Sea Grant Law & Policy Program

The Sea Grant Law & Policy Program, one of only six legal programs, is part of the law and policy component of the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program. The SGLPP provides unbiased research, education and outreach on marine and coastal law issues to its constituents. It provides research to state and federal agencies, local governments, universities and the general public. While its work focuses on the State of Louisiana, it also has regional and national application.
