Prioritizing UPR Sea Grant goals and strategies

UPR Sea Grant (UPRSG) CRA team is currently asking researchers and experts who have conducted recent studies in the Caribbean region to participate in an online survey to prioritize the research that UPRSG conducts in Puerto Rico, the USVI and, in general, the Caribbean.

As part of a US national program, UPR Sea Grant aligns its research with the focus areas that are defined at the national level. The National Sea Grant Focus Areas consist of:

1. Healthy Coastal Ecosystems

2. Sustainable Coastal Development

3. Safe and Sustainable Seafood Supply

4. Hazard Resilience and Coastal Communities

For more details about these focus areas, please visit the National Sea Grant website at

The survey was designed to help identify the goals and strategies, which are aligned with the National Sea Grant focus areas, that need immediate attention in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands (US Caribbean).

The UPR Sea Grant strategic plan for 2010-2014 is currently available at

UPR Sea Grant would like to discover practical solutions to problems of resource management and utilization. Bearing this in mind, the comments obtained from this survey will continue to help us design future request-for-proposals and will contribute to our ongoing assessment of research needs in the Caribbean.

If you would like to participate in our survey (takes only about 10 minutes to complete), please send an e-mail message to:
