2022 NOAA Sea Grant National Aquaculture Funding Opportunities

The National Sea Grant College Program has announced two federal funding opportunities to advance U.S. aquaculture:

Marine Finfish Aquaculture: Juvenile Production Technologies – open to Sea Grant Programs; $5,000,000 total; $1,000,000 maximum per award; up to 3 years

The National Sea Grant Office anticipates around $5,000,000 will be available to support research that will significantly advance marine finfish juvenile production technologies for aquaculture. The overall goal is to develop and refine reproduction/broodstock, hatchery and/or nursery strategies enabling the reliable production of sufficient quantities of juvenile marine finfish to supply on-growing operations.

 

Federal Funding Opportunity: NOAA-OAR-SG-2022-2007054

Proposal Deadlines:

Notice to submit must be received by electronic mail to the National Sea Grant Office (oar.hq.sg.aquaculture@noaa.gov) and Washington Sea Grant (wsgres@uw.edu) by 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on November 9, 2021.

Full proposals are due to grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on January 27, 2022*.

*In order to meet internal University of Washington proposal preparation deadlines, full proposals will need to be completed in collaboration with Washington Sea Grant approximately 2 weeks in advance of this deadline.

Note: Only Sea Grant Programs are eligible to apply for this opportunity. It is not a requirement that investigators, including the PI, are part of a Sea Grant program, however proposals must be submitted with and through a Sea Grant program.

 

Early Stage Propagation Strategies for Aquaculture Species – open to Sea Grant Programs; $4,000,000 total; $250,000 or $750,000 maximum per award; up to 3 years

The National Sea Grant Office anticipates approximately $4,000,000 will be available for research projects and programs that will develop and refine early stage propagation strategies (e.g., reproduction, hatchers and/or nursery strategies) for aquaculture species (excluding selected marine finfish species for food*) to supply on-growing operations.

*For marine finfish species, see Marine Finfish Aquaculture competition listed above (NOAA-OAR-SG-2022-2007054).
