The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission is requesting proposals to develop potential marine aquaculture projects in the U.S. Atlantic coast region.
NOAA Fisheries, through the commission, is making $450,000 available for the funding period of April 1, 2018, to March 31, 2019. The Commission plans to award several projects ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 each, but will give consideration to projects that can justify a greater need.
Anyone seeking support for this period must submit, as a single file, an electronic proposal by email no later than 5 p.m. EST on Thursday, February 1, 2018. For complete proposal details, qualifying requirements and submission instructions, see the Request for Proposals (RFP) atwww.asmfc.org/files/JobAnnouncements/ASMFCAquacultureRFP_Dec2017.pdf.
The Gulf and Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commissions have also issued similar RFPs seeking proposals relevant to their respective regions.
