The communications team lets people know about Oregon Sea Grant's work so that they can benefit from it and learn about marine and coastal issues. The team collaborates with OSG-funded researchers, educators and Extension specialists as well as OSG's administrators to develop content such as publications, photos, newsletters, stories and impact statements.

The team manages OSG's website and Facebook, Twitter and Flickr pages as well as OSG's YouTube channel and blog. The team also reports OSG-related publications to the National Sea Grant Library and oversees the creation of some exhibits at the OSG-operated Visitor Center at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport.

Over the past five decades, OSG's communicators produced and distributed more than 3,000 publications, videos and other items - from calendars and posters to books, radio programs and video documentaries - on marine, coastal and related topics.
