For nearly two decades, one university-
based program has been quietly going about its task
of increasing our understanding of earth's last great
frontier--the seas, oceans, and living creatures that
make up our marine and coastal environments.
That program is the Florida Sea Grant
College Program, headquartered at the University
of Florida in Gainesville and working in conjunction
with all nine state universities, two private
universities, and several private research facilities.
The Florida Sea Grant College Program
was established in 1972 as part of a national
program created by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Florida Sea
Grant's duties are targeted on developing marine
resources for maximum social and economic use,
while conserving and properly managing that use.
This partnership program secures its financial
support from federal, state, and county
governments, the universities, marine industries, and
private citizens.
To carry out this mission, Florida Sea
Grant uses research projects to obtain factual
information and extension services to convey the
information to people who need it. This process not
only improves our use of marine resources, but also
serves a valuable educational role in teaching
resource users about their impact on the
environment.
"Our research efforts result in putting
science to work for people," said Dr. Jim Cato,
director of the Florida Sea Grant College Program.
"When information needs are identified, we help
fund the research that provides people with answers
to their questions about the marine environment."
Sea Grant's education and extension
functions are equally important in making
information available to residents and visitors alike.
From formal classroom education to informal
community programs, Sea Grant's marine extension
agents link scientists and citizens. Seminars,
newsletters, newspaper and magazine articles,
television news, 4-H projects, and community
organizations all play a part in distributing Sea
Grant information.



Introduction to Sea Grant


0
Dr. Cato's philosophy sums up the various
roles played by Sea Grant: "we help improve
people's lives while enhancing the coastal
environment through work supported by strong
rationale, good science, and user involvement."

PUBLICATION CATEGORIES

This catalog lists the publications available from Florida Sea Grant. Publications are listed under major headings
by subject. Categories include:

Beaches, Dunes and Coastal Features includes publications that relate to coastal development features (i.e.
vegetation, seawalls, dock construction); coastal weather patterns (i.e. hurricanes, storm surges); and publications
that describe specific physical area studies (i.e. West Coast inlets).

Commercial and Recreational Fishing includes all publications about Florida's commercial and recreational
fishing industry. Publications about fishing tournaments, fishing boats, fishing for specific species (i.e. shark
fishing) are listed here.

Seafood and Aquaculture includes all publications that discuss edible resources from the sea, from production
to consumption.

Boating, Diving and Recreation publications here include artificial reef publications as well as publications
about recreational boating, safety and diving.

Education publications in this section concentrate on conference proceedings and documents specifically
published as education or research findings.

Video Tapes to expand its publication materials Sea Grant is developing video tapes to allow a variety of
practical information to be presented to individuals and groups.

NOTE: Some publications may be listed in several categories because the content may apply to several
categories.

Publication Description

Florida Sea Grant publications are produced in different forms depending on the subject matter and the audience
addressed. Prices for the publications vary (many single publications are free).

Marine Advisory Fact Sheets: These publications are concise pamphlets that offer brief explanations of marine
and coastal topics for specific user groups.

Marine Advisory Program Publications: These publications are comprised of bulletins, pamphlets, reports and
games about coastal and marine issues, concerns and problems.

Sea Grant Extension Bulletins: Sea Grant Extension Bulletins are non-technical or semi-technical publications
intended for a lay audience or a specific user group. Bulletins may provide information, interpretation or
instruction.

Sea Grant Extension Fact Sheets: These fact sheets are brief and less detailed with information in condensed
form for specific user groups. Fact Sheets may also provide a means of publishing, for lay audiences, pertinent
portions of much longer Florida Sea Grant College Program Reports.

Sea Grant Reports: These publications are semi-technical or technical and are also interpretation or application
of research results to specific marine problems or they may have broad application. Reports are not designed
or intended to be a substitute for professional journal articles. These reports deal with a multitude of coastal
and marine issues including economic concerns, commercial issues and problems, construction, conference
proceedings, aquaculture, bibliographies, artificial reefs, hurricanes, beach restoration and coastal law.

Technical Papers: Technical papers are technical in nature and intended for limited audiences rather than for
general distribution. While the subject matter may be suited to publication in a professional journal, the length
and time element may preclude this.










Sea Grant Journal Articles: The Florida Sea Grant College Program, headquartered on the University of
Florida campus in Gainesville, maintains a historically-complete reference section of highly-technical, published-
research articles. Although these articles are not listed in this catalog, a complete listing is available by special
request through the Florida Sea Grant office.

With 800 miles of beaches and 1500 miles of
shoreline, Florida's coastline is one of its most
important resources. In fact, more than 13 million
people visit Florida's beaches each year. Insuring
that these fragile and often unstable areas survive a
variety of manmade and natural pressures is a major
goal of Florida Sea Grant's research effort.

SGR-95 Application of Wetland Valuation Theory to Florida Fisheries. Frederick W. Bell. This report
provides an economic evaluation of the value of estuarine wetlands to marine fisheries in Florida.
Although wetlands provide many contributions to environmental quality and society as a whole, the
lack of a dollars-and-cents market for these services often produces conflict between wetland owners
and the public. By employing the marginal productivity theory of wetland valuation, this report
establishes a monetary value of these lands to the state's fishing industry and helps establish a
rationale for government purchase or intervention in preserving wetlands. 112 pp., $3.

Davis, Jr. and James C. Gibeaut. This paper places the inlets along Florida's west-central coast into
four categories based on the factors that have historically influenced their shape and movement. A
line drawing and historical data are presented for each of 30 inlets from Hurricane Pass in Pinellas
County to Caxambas Pass in Collier County. 81 pp., $3.







































Florida ranks fifth in the Nation in terms of
the dockside value of fish landed by the state's
commercial fishermen. In addition, the five million
recreationists who fish in Florida's waters contribute
nearly $2 billion to the state's economy each year.
A major part of Sea Grant's research and extension
efforts is devoted to supporting fishing in Florida.
Economics, biology, and engineering are just a few .
of the disciplines applied by Sea Grant researchers
to protect and enhance the commercial and
recreational fishing industries.

Protecting Florida's environment is a major
concern to all of her citizens. The state's rapid
growth rate often places its fragile ecosystems,
especially the coastlines and waterways, in peril. As
a result, Floridians face the challenge of preserving
the environment while supporting a growing
population.
Florida Sea Grant is committed to providing
citizens with the information they need to meet this
challenge. Through its research, education, and
extension resources, Florida Sea Grant is working to
balance productivity and preservation to insure the
continued health of her economy and the beauty of
her environment.
