Training the next generation of scientists who will work to protect oceans and human health.

The health of coastal ecosystems is inextricably tied to humans and human health. Ecosystems directly or indirectly provide vital services or goods to humans, including clean air, clean water, food, and recreation. Healthy coastal ecosystems are essential for the survival and prosperity of human populations.

Our mission: To train scientists who can work effectively in the coastal zone, who understand the dynamics of the coastal system and the specific problems that relate to ecosystem and human health; to provide resources and information that will address and shape human responses to pressing coastal management problems related to living marine resources, seafood safety and human health.
