Minnesota Sea Grant College Program

Our Vision. We envision citizens using a science-based understanding of the environment to address issues concerning Lake Superior and Minnesota's aquatic resources and related economies. Our Mission. Minnesota Sea Grant’s mission is to facilitate interaction among the public and scientists to enhance communities, the environment, and economies along Lake Superior and Minnesota's inland waters by identifying information needs, fostering research, and communicating results. More succinctly stated – Superior Science for You. Our Strategy. We concentrate on research, outreach, and education in four focus areas: 1. Healthy Coastal Ecosystems.  2. Sustainable Coastal Development.  3. Safe and Sustainable Seafood Supply.  4. Coastal Community Resilience. Our strategy includes a nimble response to emerging issues within our focus areas as well as bold goals that are achievable through research and outreach.
