Alaska Sea Grant College Program

The Alaska Sea Grant College Program is a partnership between the University of Alaska and the National Sea Grant College Program, administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. ASG is housed in the UAF School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, with headquarters in Fairbanks. ASG develops and supports research, education, and extension programs and partnerships to help sustain Alaska's society and economy, and conserve Alaska's marine, estuarine and coastal watershed resources.

The Alaska Sea Grant Marine Advisory Program, headquartered in Anchorage, supports a team of field agents who are SFOS faculty members in 10 coastal communities. MAP agents provide a direct link between UAF and coastal residents, helping people learn about, wisely use, and conserve Alaska's marine and coastal resources. 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 also recruits students to compete for lucrative, career-building national fellowships. For more information, visit or call 907-474-7086.
