  • Description:
    This report highlights activities during the fourth year of Sea Grant institutional support for the University of North Carolina. In spite of reduced funding for 1974, significant progress was made in several areas. Although structured projects yielded most of this year's progress, Sea Grant's presence, through its management and outreach, made response to current and timely needs possible without large expenditures of funds. Sea Grant was able to initiate important preliminary work to assess the problems of offshore sewage disposal, a high priority state policy problem. Sea Grant advisory agents responded to an urgent request from the state's Coastal Resources Commission to inform local government officials of guidelines for drawing up county land-use plans. Three workshops, held within six weeks of the request, provided valuable information to the counties and feedback to the Commission. Combining with the Coastal Plains Regional Commission's Center for Marine Development, the Program conducted needed workshops in coastal zone management, eel fishing techniques and shrimp fishing improvements. Through this cooperative, we produced information bulletins and initiated a seafood processing and handling pilot study. Pathways of communications were improved with relevant state agencies this year, laying important groundwork for more realistic responses and better coordination. Regular conferences with high level agency personnel have resulted in both better responses on the Program's part to relevant problem areas and the agencies' immediate utilization of research results. This relationship is even more vital in the maintenance of a future, more viable Program. Most of the research projects initiated during the early days of our institutional program have reached completion during 1974. This means that results and final reports are now reaching user groups and that new, important problems needing solutions can be addressed. Sea Grant has reached higher levels of recognition and is now able to expand into other, more pertinent areas of research and advisory services.
