NOAA’s National Sea Grant Office and Ocean Acidification Program will be providing an overview & answers to FAQs for the recently announced funding opportunity to understand how acidification and other stressors will impact shellfish aquaculture.
NOAA is currently seeking applications that 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 ocean and coastal acidification in combination with other stressors impact shellfish aquaculture. Projects should utilize multiple parameter physical, chemical, or biological observing systems and/or conduct multiple stressor experimental research. Additionally, research/industry partnerships must utilize a co-production of knowledge framework. This means shellfish growers must collaborate with researchers throughout all aspects of the scientific process, from project conceptualization to execution to dissemination of knowledge and development of deliverables.
