Pennsylvania Sea Sea Grant (PASG) addresses goals and focus areas that align with NOAA-National Sea Grant to effectively manage coastal and Great Lakes resources, and balance human needs with environmental health by: developing sound scientific information, facilitating an informed public and supporting inclusive decision-making.

Focus Areas include

  • Healthy Coastal Ecosystems
  • Sustainable Coastal Development
  • Safe and sustainable seafood development
  • Hazard Resilience in coastal communities

Below are topics within our focus areas. Some are discussed in more than one area. For example, you can’t study water quality without understanding the effects of land use planning, which also affects drinking water and wildlife habitat.
