Pennsylvania Sea Grant

Delaware River Program

Pennsylvania Sea Grant (PASG) fosters scientific research, education, and outreach projects designed to encourage science-based decisions about the use and conservation of our aquatic resources.  We’re a partnership of Penn State University, The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). and a member of the National Sea Grant College Network, 33 programs in coastal and Great Lakes states. PASG began in 1998 on the Penn State Erie campus as a highly focused Lake Erie watershed outreach program. As the program grew, PASG expanded to serve the Delaware River and Susquehanna River watersheds.
