Florida Sea Grant:
Sea Grant Research has demonstrated that changing the techniques for harvesting sponges can greatly increase the sustainability of Florida's commercially valuable marine sponge industry. Some say that without this Florida Sea Grant, the sponge industry of Florida wouldn't exist.
Sea Grant and the Oil spill:
FSG and UF Extension provided efficient outreach to coastal residents, businesses and communities. They helped owners file claims and provided support for volunteers. In addition, FSG is working with Gulf of Mexico Land Grant Universities to ensure safety of seafood as well as lending hands to families facing economic crisis due to the oil spill.
