About IISG

Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant combines research, education and outreach to empower southern Lake Michigan communities to secure a healthy environment and economy.

One of more than 30 Sea Grant Programs in the U.S., IISG is focused on the southern Lake Michigan region--104 miles of heavily urbanized and industrialized shoreline in Illinois and Indiana. One third of the population of the Great Lakes lives along the shore of Lake Michigan between Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Michigan City, Indiana.

The Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant College Program addresses the critical concerns of resource sustainability, water quality, ecosystems and human health of the area of Lake Michigan bordered by the two states.

The program serves:

  • Resource users - coastal residents, coastal businesses and industries, lake food consumers, tourists and recreationists
  • Policy makers - governmental and municipal officials at all levels
  • Information users - natural resource professionals, museum and aquarium planners and visitors, environmental organizations, industry managers, media, citizen groups, retailers, aquaculture producers and marketers, educators, and university researchers.
