Ohio State University's Ohio Sea Grant College Program is one of 33 programs in
the NOAA National Sea Grant Program. Through coastal research, education, and
outreach projects, Sea Grant addresses critical environmental, economic, and
education issues. As a partnership between universities, government, and private industry, Sea
Grant supports research projects at several Ohio colleges and universities, 8 extension agents
from Toledo to Conneaut, and strong education and communications programs. Ohio Sea
Grant's F.T. Stone Laboratory, located on Gibraltar Island at Put-in-Bay was created in 1895 and is
the oldest freshwater biological field station in the country.
In 2013 Ohio Sea Grant was evaluated and ranked as one of the top programs (number 2 or 3
out of 33) in the country by NOAA's National Sea Grant College Program, and in 2009 Ohio Sea
Grant's outreach program was named as Ohio State University's top outreach program for the C.

Dealing with fouling organisms is necessary to ensure fuel efficiency, to prevent the spread of
invasive species such as the zebra mussel, and to protect the boat itself. However, as boats
are power washed to remove residual fouling, copper from
antifouling paint leaches into the wash water and can enter Lake Erie
as runoff. A free copper ion can adsorb suspended particulate matter
as it settles and accumulates in the sediment. The Ohio Clean Marinas
Program, with a grant from the Ohio Lake Erie Commission's Lake Erie
Protection Fund, performed a study on copper concentrations at Lake
Erie marinas. In collaboration with Bowling Green State University
and Lake Erie marinas, data was collected on copper accumulation
in sediment over the course of one boating season. The results will
aid scientists, agencies, marina owners, and boaters in obtaining a
better picture of the contribution of boat bottom wash wastewater to
copper concentrations in Lake Erie nearshore sediments, and in finding
sustainable solutions for boat bottom washing.Year: 2014, Pages: 2
This presentation is based on research and information provided by Dr. Stuart Ludsin at Ohio State University. More background information is available from Dr. Ludsin's Global Change, Local Impact webinar (changingclimate.osu.edu/webinars/archives/2011-04-19) and from “Fishing for Change,” Ohio Sea Grant Twine Line Winter/Spring 2013, pg. 10-11 (ohioseagrant.osu.edu/_documents/twineline/v35i1.pdf#page=10). The presentation slides can be used on their own, or integrated into a larger presentation on Lake Erie fishing and fisheries.Year: 2013, Pages: 9
In the winter of 2011, Ohio Sea Grant conducted a comprehensive survey of the charter fishing industry of Ohio's portion of Lake Erie. The survey is an effort to provide an update on the status, business characteristics, and economics of the charter fishing business in Ohio's portion of Lake Erie. The survey is modeled after a similar survey last conducted in 2006 and part of a larger database of information conducted since 1985. The data reported here are for the year 2010.

The objectives of this study focus upon economic impact of birdwatching as it relates to substantial economic expenditures; tourism patterns of birdwatching along Lake Erie; and strategic partnership among the communities and industries to promote the local economy and to market birdwatching. The findings show that birdwatching at six Ohio natural areas along Lake Erie generated $26,438,398 in 2011, created 283 jobs for those living and working in these coastal communities, generated $8.9 million in personal income, and contributed $1.9 million tax revenues directed to local and state coffers. Birders visiting Lake Erie provide significant revenue infusions to the regions year around.
