Local coastal ecosystems support a healthy range of recreational, commercial and subsistence activities. MIT Sea Grant helps local residents, natural resource managers and businesses protect and restore these habitats for continued ecosystem and public well-being.
MIT Sea Grant’s outreach efforts create opportunities for exchange of information among researchers, Marine Advisory staff, and our stakeholders to support ecosystem-based management. We also conduct innovative research to increase the efficiency and capabilities of industry to ensure long-term viability of coastal ecosystems.
