    National Sea Grant Law Center awarded over $300k to lead 2 major aquaculture projects, partner on 1 more
  • The National Sea Grant Program recently awarded $16 million for 42 research projects nationwide for collaborative aquaculture projects. The National Sea Grant Law Center (NSGLC) will lead two of the new aquaculture initiatives and contribute to one additional project aimed at advancing sustainable aquaculture in the United States. The 42 projects were chosen from among 136 proposals requesting more than $52 million in federal funds. The awards require a 50 percent match of non-federal funds.
