Grants to USA federal agencies, research institutions and organizations, IHEs, private corporations and organizations, state agricultural experiment stations, and individuals for research to expand the aquaculture industry. Applicants must complete required registrations prior to submitting a proposal.
The purpose of the Special Research Grants for Aquaculture Research program is to support the development of an environmentally and economically sustainable aquaculture industry in the United States by generating new, science-based information and technology to address industry constraints. Applied research is needed to develop practical solutions that will facilitate growth and remove limitations to expansion of the United States aquaculture industry. Results of projects supported by this program are intended to help improve the profitability of the United States aquaculture industry, reduce the 13-billion-dollar United States seafood trade deficit, increase domestic food security, expand markets for United States-produced products, and provide more jobs for rural and coastal America.
For the FY2022 Special Research Grants for Aquaculture Research program, NIFA is soliciting applied aquaculture research applications. Applications must:
a. Genetics of commercial aquaculture species;
b. Critical disease issues impacting commercial aquaculture species;
c. Design of environmentally and economically sustainable commercial aquaculture production systems;
d. Development of climate resilient technologies, production systems, and/or management strategies for commercial aquaculture species; or
e. Economic research for increasing commercial aquaculture profitability.
