California’s Ocean Protection Council (OPC) was created in accordance with the 2004 California Ocean Protection Act to improve the management and protection of ocean and coastal resources and ecosystems. One of the many ways the OPC achieves this purpose is by supporting innovative research that directly informs and improves the stewardship of ocean resources. Beginning in early 2007, the OPC awarded funds to California Sea Grant to administer competitive, rigorously peer-reviewed, scientific research to address some of the state’s highest marine research priorities.
This PDF summary of research is being made available by California Sea Grant and contains seven projects for which the research has been completed, and an additional three projects that are ongoing at the time this summary was released.
