Annual Reports are submitted to the University of Maine Vice President for Research, typically in the summer following the reporting period, which runs from February 1 to January 31. We also report this same material to the NOAA National Sea Grant Office. Impacts and accomplishments can be searched and browsed on the National Sea Grant website.

In 2003, Maine Sea Grant provided $5,000 in program development funds to the Herring Gut Learning Center, a nonprofit education organization in the small fishing community of Port Clyde, ME. This grant supported the development of a saltwater aquaculture system, which is a central part of the Center's multi-age education programs in marine science and technology.
