Strategic Plan

Maine’s coastal communities that continue to depend on natural resources face demographic, economic, political, and environmental changes that create conflict, increase demand on the coastal environment, and have the potential to erode Maine’s unique natural and cultural heritage. Maine Sea Grant envisions a future in which Maine’s coast is resilient to challenges and changes—resilient communities continually gather the necessary skills, knowledge, and resources (human and physical) to plan for, cope with, and thrive in the face of both predicted and unexpected change.
