The Great Lakes are crucial to Michigan’s culture and economic vitality. Explore how the Great Lakes are intertwined with our way of life through land use, jobs reports, water access, coastal development and more.
It is important to be aware of potential Great Lakes hazards like dangerous currents, extreme storms and floods, harmful algal blooms and boater safety. The best way to combat these dangers is to be prepared and know how to respond.
From drinking water to economies built on commercial fisheries, restoration is fundamental to keeping the Great Lakes viable. MSG is leading and partnering on several large-scale restoration projects.
Recreational, commercial and tribal fisheries are a vital part of Michigan’s heritage. Michigan Sea Grant conducts scientific research to lay the groundwork for sound fishery management.
Many plants and animals rely on the Great Lakes to survive. Learn more about the birds, plants and animals — native and invasive — that call the Great Lakes home.
Michigan Sea Grant helps promote safe and environmentally sound boating and marina practices through things like the Know Your Nets campaigns and the Clean Marina Program.
Michigan Sea Grant is soliciting three types of projects for the next research funding cycle, from 2016-2018. For the past several cycles, MSG has focused on Integrated Assessment projects. The 2015 call for proposals, however, includes two new opportunities. Core research, a more traditional approach to research, and graduate student research fellowships have been added to this RFP.
