We're soliciting applications for NOAA Sea Grant Aquaculture Research Program grants for 2016, which is open to researchers from institutions of higher education, nonprofit organizations, commercial organizations and state, local and Indian tribal governments. Preproposals must be submitted by March 10, 2016.

NOAA expects to have up to $3 million available for this national competition, intended to support the development of environmentally and economically sustainable ocean, coastal, or Great Lakes aquaculture. We strongly encourage potential applicants from Oregon to contact Oregon Sea Grant Director Shelby Walker to discuss the relevancy of the proposed idea and the process for submitting a full proposal.
