  • Description:
    The purposes of the University of Rhode Island's Sea Grant College Program are strongly reflected in the commitments of several of the University's eight colleges. It has achieved its ability to transcend traditional college and departmental lines through strong support on the part of the University's presidents and its governing boards, through imaginative administration under the Provost for Marine Affairs, and through faculty interest in the types of problems and potentials central to the Sea Grant ideal. Three general conditions give focus to our Sea Grant efforts: • The New England fisheries are in some respects a troubled industry, but in others, a very active and growing enterprise. The opportunities for industry-​Sea Grant cooperation are tremendous and can prove beneficial to both industry and the nation. • The southern New England coast - its embayments, beaches and marshes - is under uncommon pressure from its residents and from the millions of people who live within a day's drive. In this sea-land interface private and public property rights meet, and industry, natural areas, recreation, and commercial service firms must co-exist. • The University of Rhode Island has a unique capability to train selected manpower needed to use the nation's marine resources efficiently and equitably. The situation created by these three conditions leads naturally to education, research and advisory service programs in areas such as commercial fisheries, marine environmental problems, marine recreation, aquaculture, foods from the sea, and problems of mining in the sea. This third Annual Report gives a general view of our Sea Grant activities in fiscal year 1974. Individuals interested in more detail on particular aspects of our work are invited to write to us for further information.
