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-AquacultureJPG.JPG

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.

Resilent-Communities-and-Economies.jpg

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

Homeowner's Handbook Available

HomeownersHandbook-coverWEB.jpg

The new Texas Homeowner's Handbook to Prepare for Coastal Natural Hazards is now available in print and online at hazardshandbook.com

This handbook was created to help Texans prepare for natural hazards and help them reduce the risks to lives and property. Although it is never possible to eliminate all risk from a natural hazard, homeowners can take action and implement many small and cost-effective steps that could significantly lower their risk and exposure to those  hazards.
