Pacific Northwest Coastal Ecosystems Regional Study (PNCERS)
"...is a research and outreach program based on coastal management issues and needs. We are sponsoring studies of the nearshore and estuarine ecosystems of the Pacific Coast between the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Cape Mendocino. Our intention is to help users and managers of coastal resources better understand how coastal ecosystems in the region respond to natural variability of the ocean and atmosphere and to effects of human activities...to fill these information gaps and to focus on the linkages between watersheds, estuaries, nearshore ocean, the wider ocean basin, and atmospheric conditions."
"...is a multimedia public education project designed to raise awareness of the world ocean and the life within it. We aim to provide information and opinion from a broad spectrum of sources to help us all become more connected and involved in the life of the sea."
- SeaWeb Aquaculture Clearinghouse
"...is a project that SeaWeb embarked on in 1998 to help address the growing issue of fish farming. We serve as an information center on environmental and social issues related to aquaculture and proactively distribute quality materials to targeted policy-makers, members of the media, conservation organizations, the industry, and others in the United States and around the world."
