Contract and Grant Reports

In addition to producing its own publications, reports, and abstracts, the NEFSC also sponsors the production of such works with contracts and grants. The NEFSC awards funds to external organizations to conduct special, nonrecurring research when the NEFSC lacks the expertise, capability, and/or time to conduct such research itself. The final reports emanating from contract and grant research range from informal memoranda to formal publications, and can contribute significantly to the body of scientific knowledge.

NOTES
Incomplete Records: For some items in the following list (especially for some of the older items), our files do not contain full documentation (no issuance date, missing contract number, etc.).
Obtaining/Viewing Copies: A copy of all contract and grant reports will eventually be maintained in the library at the NEFSC's James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory at Sandy Hook, New Jersey (732-872-3035). If you cannot locate a copy at the Howard Laboratory library, contact the NEFSC's Editorial Office which should be able to direct you to an NEFSC researcher with a copy (508-495-2228). Eventually, all contract and grant reports should be online and available for viewing through links on this webpage.
