Sea Grant, an organization with a history of working closely with water-dependent industries, has documented many examples where research, education, extension, and outreach (REEO) programs have increased private-sector economic activity, including the creation or expansion of businesses and jobs. Yet, there has not been a systematic survey in the Gulf region to assess the full scope of these impacts. This preliminary study provides general information about the benefits the region’s industries have gained from REEO efforts sponsored by the Gulf of Mexico Sea Grant Programs. The study is a critical first step in conducting a future systematic assessment of the economic benefits resulting from these programs.
