Maine Sea Grant has been providing marine science research, education, and outreach for 35 years. Sometimes our work yields positive economic benefits. In just the last four years, Maine Sea Grant activities generated an estimated $22 million in economic impacts, created or sustained 300+ businesses and 130 jobs, and provided 200 communities with technical assistance on challenging issues including working waterfront preservation, coastal infrastructure, and fishing industry diversification.
