The MIT Sea Grant Coastal Resources Program trained and educated nine interns and 1,655 students, teachers, citizen scientists, volunteers, and public groups in fisheries management, coastal ecology, and ecosystem services.
MIT Sea Grant Coastal Resources Program provided training and education in fisheries management, coastal ecology, and ecosystem services in response to the growing demand for increased awareness, understanding, and professional training in these areas. Partners and stakeholders have requested assistance to provide these programs that will enable a more proactive, responsive, and knowledgeable citizenry, and skilled workforce that is better prepared to address impacts to coastal habitats and infrastructure, and efforts to ensure long-term sustainability of fisheries, habitats, and coastal resources.
MIT Sea Grant Coastal Resources Program trained and educated students, teachers, volunteers, and citizen scientists in fisheries and coastal resources during the past year. We worked with a broad range of partners ranging from local towns and community groups to nonprofit organizations, state and federal agencies, the general public, and school groups throughout Massachusetts coastal communities.
Nine interns and 1,655 students, teachers, citizen scientists, volunteers, and public groups in fisheries management, coastal ecology, and ecosystem services, increasing environmental literacy and awareness in support of coastal resource sustainability for Massachusetts coastal communities. Internship and citizen science training through this program contributes to a skilled and knowledgeable workforce in support of industry and resource management.
