Sea Grant: By The Numbers

For 50 years, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Sea Grant College Program (NOAA Sea Grant) has been putting science to work for America's coastal communities.

Learn why Sea Grant is a smart investment in our nation's coastal economy via a two-page fact sheet (pdf) and "by the numbers" one-page stats sheet (pdf).

Also, there's the 44-page 2016 Biennial Report to the U.S. Congress, "The State of Sea Grant" (pdf).

And, in New York, our own "What is New York Sea Grant" two-page introduction to our state program (pdf) as well as our year-by-year "Success Stories."
