Through research, education and outreach, Michigan Sea Grant is dedicated to the protection and sustainable use of the Great Lakes and coastal resources.
Our research and outreach programs promote better understanding, conservation, and use of Michigan's coastal resources.
Michigan Sea Grant currently funds scientific research, education, training, and extension projects designed to foster science-based decisions about the use and conservation of Great Lakes resources. Federal funds are matched with funds from state, tribal, business, and other sources to carry out the programs.
Sea Grant also promotes access to science-based information about Michigan's coasts and the Great Lakes. Free publications include fact sheets, reports, articles, and other documents available to download. Also, the online bookstore offers free or affordable publications.
