Are you serious about seafood? Fired up about fishes? Mad about marketing? If so, then Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant is looking for you! We're hiring an aquaculture marketing extension specialist to help develop and inform the market for local aquaculture products throughout the Midwest.
Waterways along Midwestern farmlands are typically managed to move stormwater away from crop fields quickly, but this efficient process can wash nutrients downstream. Researchers have found that a change in waterway management practices can lead to slowing down stormwater as it's drained so more nitrogen is retained along the way.
What is Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant?
We use research, outreach, and education to bring the latest science to Great Lakes communities and their residents. By connecting decision-makers with science, we help strengthen and preserve ecosystems and communities in southern Lake Michigan and beyond.More about IISG
