Woods Hole Sea Grant (WHSG) works within an ocean and coastal environment that strongly influences the state's economy, culture, and residents. Since its inception, WHSG has provided scientific research, outreach, communication and education to Massachusetts's coastal residents. WHSG-supported researchers are at the scientific foreground, and WHSG works actively with communities, coastal managers, and businesses to strengthen understanding and encourage sustainable use of the region's resources.
