Ocean Protection Council Awards $1 Million to Scripps Oceanography Researchers
Four researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego were awarded a collective $1 million in funding to study topics ranging from saltwater bass populations to coastal cliff erosion.
The awards from the Ocean Protection Council (OPC) are part of a larger grant to fund coastal and ocean management research projects in California. OPC was created in 2004 to help protect, conserve, and maintain healthy coastal and ocean ecosystems and the economies they support. The OPC works with diverse interests and provides the leadership needed to meet the accelerating and complex challenges of our time as set forth in the California Ocean Protection Act.
Funds will go to projects that advance coastal and ocean management in California.
