March 5, 2018 — The Woods Hole Sea Grant program has awarded researchers from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and other Massachusetts academic organizations funds for six new projects. The awards represent a total anticipated research investment of nearly $1.5 million over the next two years from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other non-federal matching funds.
“We are proud to have funded projects that address issues and information needs specific to our state and region,” said Woods Hole Sea Grant Director Matt Charette. “The result of this work will contribute to maintaining healthy coastal ecosystems; refining the techniques and management strategies for sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; and helping our communities and local economies to be more resilient in the face of climate change.”
