Ohio Sea Grant Announces New Funded Research Projects for 2024-2026

12:00 pm, Sun January 28, 2024 – Ohio Sea Grant has funded seven new research projects as part of the 2024-2026 research grants program

COLUMBUS, OHIO Ohio Sea Grant has funded six new research projects as part of its 2024-2026 research grants program. The projects cover topics ranging from climate change stressors and fisheries to environmental education and contaminants, to help solve critical issues affecting the state’s environment and economy.

“We had a strong set of submissions for this proposal review cycle, and these projects in particular address both current state agency needs and national Sea Grant priorities. We were excited to see an increase in environmental education research projects funded to enhance Great Lakes literacy,” said Dr. Kristen Fussell, Ohio Sea Grant’s associate director. “We believe they’ll deliver important information to those working to protect Lake Erie and the health of local communities.”

Researchers will collectively receive more than $1.18 million in Ohio Sea Grant support over two years starting February 1, 2024 as part of the following projects:

  • Connecting the Global with the Local: Strengthening Environmental Education in Urban Communities
    The Ohio State University
  • Inclusive Conservation Learning: A New Approach to Increase Diversity in STEM Through Lake Erie Blanding’s Turtle Research
    The Toledo Zoo and Aquarium
  • Resolving Potential Toxicities of Plastic Leachates on Multiple Trophic Levels in the Lake Erie Ecosystem
    Bowling Green State University
  • The Effect of Multiple Climate Stressors (temperature, hypoxia and turbidity) on the Trophic Interactions of Smallmouth Bass and Benthic Prey
    The Ohio State University
  • Spatial and Temporal Variation in the Mass Accumulation of Sediment, Nutrients and Contaminants in Lake Erie’s Central Basin
    Case Western Reserve University
  • Vaterite Versus Aragonite in Otoliths of Hatchery Salmonids: Effects on Growth and Survivorship Related to Commercial Production and Hatchery-Release
