The National Sea Grant Office (NSGO) and the Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) are funding a joint competition to fund proposals that seek to establish, continue and/or expand collaborations between researchers and the shellfish aquaculture industry. Specifically, applications to this competition should utilize new or existing research/industry partnerships to study how the ocean and coastal acidification in combination with other stressors impact shellfish aquaculture.

Applications must include at least one researcher and one shellfish grower acting as co-principal investigators, and the proposed work must utilize a co-production of knowledge framework. Total funding for this competition includes up to $2,000,000 in federal funds to support 2-6 projects. Each project will be funded at the approximate level of $100,000 - $300,000 per year for 1-3 years.  

Application deadline is December 15, 2020. For more information and application, visit caseagrant.ucsd.edu.
