Research Themes

Michigan Sea Grant has supported peer-reviewed research since the program’s inception 40 years ago. Our outreach and education programs are, in part, informed by the research we fund to provide the latest scientific information to a variety of audiences.

To search for projects by theme, click on the relevant topics below. Within each topic area, we have included current and past research projects going back to 1999. Selecting a theme will lead you to a roster of projects including the research project title, number, date and researcher contact information. A summary of a project’s results and impacts is provided for select projects.

To obtain abstracts and, where available, full papers, visit the National Sea Grant Library.
