Gulf of Mexico Sea Grant Programs Release Survey to Identify Gulf Research Needs

Dear Colleagues:

Please take a minute to read the following message from the Gulf of Mexico Sea Grant college programs and complete the survey described below:

"You can provide input to numerous groups around the Gulf of Mexico that are developing regional science and restoration plans or funding Gulf research through a single survey at:

This survey is part of an update to the Gulf of Mexico Research Plan (GMRP) ( This project helps the Gulf of Mexico research community identify research and related priorities and learn if priorities shifted during the past six years.

Multiple groups already have used input collected through previous GMRP efforts to identify and fund research, and the 2013 survey results will be distributed widely as a service to the research community. The results of this survey will be shared with the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI), NOAA Restore Act Science Program, National Academy of Science's Gulf of Mexico Program, Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council and other groups. The GMRP efforts are partially sponsored by NOAA and the four Gulf of Mexico Sea Grant college programs. Responses will be anonymous, and it will take less than 15 minutes to complete this critical survey. The survey will close on Dec. 13, so complete it today.
