Exploring New Aquaculture Opportunities - 2019: The National Sea Grant College Program (Sea Grant) was enacted by U.S. Congress in 1966 (amended in 2008, Public Law 110-394) to support leveraged federal and state partnership that harness the intellectual capacity of the nation's universities and research institutions to solve problems and generate opportunities in coastal communities. Sea Grant anticipates $1,500,000 will be available to support Sea Grant-led aquaculture projects to catalyze work in a range of topics or geographies. This competition will fund diverse, and at times, high-risk, developmental projects that will envision, explore and advance aquaculture opportunities where a minimal foundation currently exists. Projects may focus on diverse topics (e.g. adapting to environmental change; innovative species, technologies, or locations; community engagement; or traditional/ indigenous practices) and/or geographies (e.g. region of the country; state vs. federal waters; tropical; Great Lakes or cold-water) that are innovative, under-explored or would otherwise benefit from a focused developmental effort. Proposals should bring experts together in projects to identify needs and gaps in the target area. These projects may support tool development, workshops, education, outreach, business planning, and/or trainings addressing geographic or topical aquaculture issues. Potential topics include those which have been identified in Sea Grant's national focus area of Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture (SFA), the Sea Grant Network 10-year Aquaculture Vision, and in other NOAA and Department of Commerce aquaculture goals. This document sets out requirements for submitting to NOAA-OAR-SG-2019-2005960.
