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).

NSGLC Presents!

NSGLC Webinar Series: On September 20th, NSGLC hosted a webinar on “Accounting for the Entire Oyster Life Cycle in Mississippi.” The Mississippi Sound has seen a recent surge in freshwater flooding events due to multiple openings of the Bonnet Carré spillway and historic levels of coastal rainfall. Water quality stressors have negative impacts on oysters in their early life stages which may limit or prevent the recovery and resilience of oyster reefs. During this webinar, a team of researchers at the University of Mississippi studying the effects of water quality stressors on early oyster life stages shared their findings and highlighted the importance of these findings for oyster restoration policy in Mississippi.
