Outreach & Extension
The mission of the University of Delaware Sea Grant Marine Advisory Service (MAS) is to foster the wise use, conservation, and development of marine resources by acting as a conduit between university researchers and a variety of citizen users, from coastal resource managers to business owners.
The MAS assists these groups in solving problems and addressing new opportunities by providing timely, objective information and techniques. This technology and information transfer may take the form of applied research projects, workshops and training seminars, one-to-one consultations, publications, videos, web sites, and other media.
Currently, Delaware Sea Grant MAS is addressing issues related to coastal business development, marine resource management, K-12 education and lifelong learning, seafood technology, water quality, aquaculture, marine safety, coastal processes, and recreation and tourism. From their base at the UD College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment on the Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes, Del., MAS members travel throughout the world to work with clientele.
