Alaska Sea Grant
Alaska Sea Grant supports coastal communities through research, education, and extension. ASG is funded by UAF and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration with support from Alaska partners. We fund marine and coastal research, provide education and extension services to communities around the state, and distribute information about Alaska's seas and coasts through our online bookstore and regional offices. ASG is housed in the UAF School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, with headquarters in Fairbanks.
The ASG Marine Advisory Program provides outreach and technical assistance services to coastal communities statewide. MAP agents and specialists located in nine coastal communities provide a direct link between UAF and coastal residents, helping people learn about, wisely use and conserve Alaska's marine and coastal resources.
ASG communication specialists, located at ASG headquarters in Fairbanks, annually produce and distribute thousands of educational products about Alaska's seas and coasts, aimed at everyone from children to scientists and policy makers.
ASG conducts meetings to facilitate information sharing among scientists, policy makers, and constituents, including the international Lowell Wakefield Fisheries Symposium Series. ASG also recruits students to compete for career-building national fellowships. For more information, visit www.alaskaseagrant.org or call 907-474-7086.
