Making Science Work For Texans for 50 years!



Texas Sea Grant is a unique partnership that unites the resources of the federal government, the State of Texas and universities across the state to create knowledge, tools, products and services that benefit the economy, the environment and the citizens of Texas.


Focus Areas


Healthy Coastal Ecosystems

Although they are the foundation of life along the Gulf Coast, keeping coastal ecosystems healthy is a challenge because of the diversity of stressors each system faces.


Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture

Texas Sea Grant works to ensure safe, secure, and sustainable supplies of domestic seafood and decrease our reliance on seafood imports.


Resilient Communities and Economies

To balance demands on coastal resources, Texas must develop innovative policies, institutional capacities, and management approaches that increase community resilience.


STEM Literacy and Workforce Development

Texas Sea Grant promotes literacy by supporting students and the development of STEM educational programs, tools, and products.
