Ocean and aquatic sciences are incomplete without an understanding of human impacts and interactions.

Impacts and Interactions

The people and projects at Oregon Sea Grant touch on and inform all aspects of human interactions with the ocean and aquatic ecosystems. This work includes coastal and ocean economics and law, demographics, sociology, anthropology, public health, and social, behavioral, developmental psychology, and learning and communication studies.
