Federal grants totaling $2M will help UH look after ocean

By Associated Press

POSTED:



Hawaii's congressional delegation said Tuesday that the University of Hawaii will receive $2 million in federal grants to monitor and protect the marine environment in the islands and in the western Pacific.

The grants administered by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration include nearly $450,000 to help fisheries agencies supply fisheries data to researchers and managers.

More than $350,000 will support the management of coral reefs in the western part of the Pacific Ocean. Some $330,000 will fund the gathering of information on how catch limits and other policies used to manage fisheries affect communities.
