Gulf of Mexico Research Plan Workshop - Biloxi, Mississippi

The Gulf of Mexico Research Planning project is a regional interagency
planning effort sponsored by NOAA’s National Sea Grant College Program.
The purpose of the project is to identify the research priorities and information
needs for the Gulf of Mexico and determine strategies to collaboratively
address the research priorities.

Over 115 strategic plans have been examined and more than 1,500 individuals
already have provided input on Gulf of Mexico research priorities. A
synthesis of these data will be a starting point for group discussions at each
half-day workshop to be held in each of the five Gulf States of the US. Workshops will be co-facilitated by state Sea Grant College Programs and
NOAA’s Gulf Services Center.
Workshop participants will be asked to identify specific regional research
priorities and gaps that fall within the broad research themes of:
• Stewardship of natural and cultural ocean resources
• Increasing resilience to natural hazards
• Enabling marine operations, business and commerce
• The ocean’s role in climate
• Improving ecosystem health
• Enhancing human health
