NOAA’s Sea Grant Fellowship has announced new funding for aquaculture research. The fellowship wants to explore the economics of aquaculture businesses in the US to address gaps in important market information. The overall goal is advancing business expertise and developing a sustainable marine and Great Lakes aquaculture industry in the US.
According to the synopsis on the Sea Grant website, projects should address the geographic needs of projects and fully integrate research, extension and education. Preferred project proposals should support broad research areas and address the critical gaps in aquaculture markets. Full information on the grant’s scope can be found on the grants.gov website.
Notices of intent are due by 26 Feb, and full proposals are due on 22 April. More information on the grant and application process can be found on the Sea Grant website.
