Natural Aquaculture: Can We  Save Oceans by Farming Them?

Natural Aquaculture: Can We Save Oceans by Farming Them?

Yale Environment 360

A small but growing number of entrepreneurs are creating sea-farming operations that cultivate shellfish together with kelp and seaweed, a combination they contend can restore ecosystems and mitigate the impacts of ocean acidification.

Postdoctoral opportunity: Ocean and Coastal Acidification and Hypoxia Effects on Marine and Estuarine Organisms

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

The participant will collaborate with a team of EPA scientists on several papers and laboratory-based research efforts investigating the effects of ocean and nutrient-enhanced coastal acidification on marine and estuarine organisms, including coral, invertebrates, and fish. The research includes laboratory investigations of the interactive effects of acidification and hypoxia on a range of species and life stages of estuarine organisms.

FEDERAL FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: Regional Vulnerability Assessments for Ocean Acidification

NOAA Ocean Acidification Program

The Ocean Acidification Program is soliciting proposals for collaborative projects of up to 2 years in duration that synthesize ocean acidification information at a regional scale (e.g. Large Marine Ecosystem, large estuary or collection of small estuaries, and state or collection of states in US waters) to determine where societal vulnerabilities to ocean acidification exist or are emerging, in order to provide actionable information for marine resource decision makers. This funding opportunity will not support the collection of new chemical or ecological observations or species response data. Social science data collection is permitted.

More information on how to apply can be found on the Information for Applicants page. This grant is Funding Opportunity Number: NOAA-OAR-OAP-2017-2005016.  Email Letters of Intent to erica.h.ombres@noaa.gov. Full proposals should be submitted through grants.gov/

Important dates:  Letters of Intent are due November 4th and full proposals are due January 13th
