The primary goal of Extension is to provide useful information to people employed or interested in fields related to marine resources from fishermen, coastal engineers, maritime industry personnel, resource managers and decision makers to the general public. Extension personnel expertise includes biology, sociology, economics, public policy, and engineering. Each Extension professional works directly with coastal communities and their business professionals and uses approaches to transfer information and effect change using science-based information in their daily decision-making.

Questions about the Extension Program may be directed to Dr. Peter Rowe, Director of Research and Extension at the NJSGC.
