Ohio Sea Grant and Stone Laboratory


Lake Erie is faced with constant challenges from pollution, both newly introduced and recycled through changing biological pathways and invasive species; Ohio Sea Grant works to keep resource users informed and help management agencies understand and control these problems. From tracking the presence of pollutants and potentially toxic algal blooms to remediation through biotechnology and wetland restoration to staying abreast of the most recent fish consumption advisories, our programs produce real tools for dealing with pollution.
