Texas Sea Grant is dedicated to the wise use and conservation of our valuable marine resources. The program supports university research and also has significant activities in marine education and outreach through the Marine Information Service (MIS) and the Marine Advisory Service (MAS).
Texas Sea Grant is headquartered in College Station and is part of the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University, with field-based support at Texas AgriLife Research & Extension Centers and in cooperating counties. Texas A&M was designated a Sea Grant College in 1971, becoming one of the first four state programs established under the National Sea Grant College Act of 1966. Faculty at institutions throughout the state of Texas who have expertise in the marine environment are eligible to submit research proposals. Support for the program comes from the Federal government through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Texas legislature, Texas A&M University, and County Government.
