Delaware Sea Grant Advisory Council 2014

Delaware Sea Grant Advisory Council

The Sea Grant Advisory Council — the statewide external advisory body to the Delaware Sea Grant College Program — was created in 1974. Its members, listed below, hail from marine-oriented business and industry, resource management and engineering firms, state government, public interest groups, the pre-college educational sector, and the media.

Working within the national priorities identified by the National Sea Grant College Program, the council helps further define priority coastal issues relevant to Delaware. In 1975, the Sea Grant Advisory Council spearheaded the request to the Delaware General Assembly for a $250,000 line in the state budget earmarked for the University of Delaware Sea Grant College Program. Since then, the council has assisted in maintaining and increasing this initial appropriation as well as helped us identify potential partners for accomplishing specific research and outreach objectives.
