The NSGLC is pleased to offer the October 2022 issue of Ocean and Coastal Case Alert.

Environmental groups alleged the agency failed to consider impacts on endangered or threatened species of sea turtles and sturgeon.

Later this year, the NSGLC will be releasing a call for proposals for research projects examining the effectiveness of coastal adaptation and resilience laws and policies. The competition will be open to Sea Grant Programs, colleges, universities, and nonprofit, non-academic institutions directly associated with research activities (e.g. public policy organizations).

The Great Lakes Aquaculture Collaborative (GLAC), led by Minnesota Sea Grant, was awarded $425,000 by the National Sea Grant Office. GLAC supports an environmentally responsible, competitive and sustainable aquaculture industry in the Great Lakes region. The Law Center will assist GLAC with compiling and analyzing aquaculture laws in the Great Lakes region.
