UH Sea Grant program
earns top rank in review

The University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program has received the highest ranking from experts on 14 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration performance standards.

The achievement positions the program for additional funding for research, extension and education activities to benefit Hawaii and the Pacific region, the program reported.

An eight-member review panel spoke with more than 100 UH Sea Grant staff members, partners and collaborators about Sea Grant programs in an analysis in August. The Sea Grant director is E. Gordon Grau.

Positive results of the Sea Grant's marine science projects were reported at the Hanauma Bay Education Center, the Windward Community College Aquaculture Facility and the Waikalua Fishpond, associate director Mary Donohue said.

The program's activities are directed toward sustainable use of marine and watershed resources to address vital issues affecting Hawaii and the Pacific region, such as coastal erosion and restoring nearshore resources and aquifer levels.
