Louisiana Sea Grant Launches Hurricane Web Site
Posted: 10/4/05

BATON ROUGE – Responding to the need for information in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program has launched a recovery resources Web site at http://www.laseagrant.org/hurricane/index.htm.

The Louisiana Hurricane Recovery Resources site offers visitors information on topics such as wetlands, seafood and water quality to ports, economic impacts and rebuilding concerns. Through a question and answer format with experts from a variety of fields, residents, business owners and community leaders can findthe information they need to make decisions about their immediate future. The experts provide the best current information, and updates are made as new data become available.

The hurricane recovery site launch coincides with the unveiling of a more user-friendly redesign of the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program Web site, http://www.laseagrant.org.

The new design incorporates easier navigation, more seamless connections to other Louisiana Sea Grantsites and also offers visitors a search engine function. The revised anchor site is the first step in a project to redesign several Louisiana Sea Grant Web sites. Other Louisiana Sea Grant sites provide information on fish species, aquaculture, commercial and recreational fishing regulations, relevant legal information, data on statetourism industry trends and resources for science and marine educators.

Since its establishment in 1968, Louisiana Sea Grant has worked to promote stewardship of the state’s coastal resources through a combination of research, education and outreach programs critical to the cultural,economic and environmental health of Louisiana’s coastal zone. Louisiana Sea Grant, based at Louisiana State University, is part of the National Sea Grant Program, a network of 30 programs in each of the U.S. coastal and Great Lakes states and Puerto Rico/U.S. Virgin Islands.
