Funding Opportunity: Interagency Working Group on Research for Farming Seaweeds and Seagrasses

External Funding Opportunity Due June 1, 2022

The Bigelow Center for Seafood Solutions is excited to announce the request for applications for funding to support pilot studies relevant to the Interagency Working Group on Research for Farming of Seaweeds and Seagrasses, chaired by the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service and operating in partnership with the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences' Center for Seafood Solutions.

Three $100,000 awards will be granted to academic institutions or research nonprofits leading new research endeavors aimed to (1) deacidify ocean environments, (2) produce feedstock for agriculture applications, OR (3) develop other scalable applications for seaweed, seagrasses, or products derived from them.

To apply, go to the application login page below and click "CREATE NEW ACCOUNT" to set up a new account:

Ocean acidification featured at 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting

The 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting held virtually February 24 - March 4 will feature more than 30 ocean and coastal acidification presentations by researchers supported by NOAA Ocean Acidification Program. Read more about their presentations, which include talks, posters, a town hall meeting and tutorial about Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) and ocean acidification research. The Ocean Sciences Meeting, the global leader of ocean sciences conferences, is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS).

Postdoctural Opportunity: Responses of farmed shellfish to mutiple stressors

Rutgers University

The Haskin Shellifsh Research Lab at Rutgers University is seeking a postdoctoral research associate to join a dynamic research team on a project that will involve both field-based and laboratory-based experiments.The postdoc will be responsible for coordinating experiments which will include farm-scale grow-out experiments in the ocean, lab-scale multi-stressor (temperature and ocean acidification) experiments in the hatchery, meetings with industry and management collaborators, and writing reports and manuscripts about results. Opportunities for grant writing, undergraduate student mentoring, and presentations at science conferences will be encouraged. Funding is in place for 18 monthsand will include travel to meet with project collaborators and advisors from management and fishing communities.

The Northeast Coastal Acidification Network: A Force for Ocean Acidification Coordination

NOAA OCEAN ACIDIFICATION PROGRAM

“We need to do this in the Northeast!”

Dwight Gledhill, Deputy Director of NOAA’s Ocean Acidification Program, and Ru Morrison, Executive Director of Northeastern Regional Association of Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (NERACOOS), exclaimed after listening to a presentation on the newly formed California Current Acidification Network. Seeing how the West Coast was creating a collaboration of scientists, industry members, and managers on the West Coast inspired them to start a similar effort on the other side of the country in the Northeast US.

Addressing Ocean Acidification in a Vulnerable Region: The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network

NOAA OCEAN ACIDIFICATION PROGRAM

Ocean acidification is a global issue, driven by absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and it holds particular interest and concern for Alaskans. A primary reason is that Alaska water is cold, and cold water can hold more gas – just like a cold soda stays more fizzy than a warm one. This makes Alaska’s waters naturally more rich in carbon dioxide and thereby higher in acidity, placing it closer to the threshold that could be harmful to marine organisms. Since Alaska is home to a $6 billion dollar seafood industry and many communities that rely heavily on subsistence fishing, the stakes are high.
