Senator Lopez Named To Key Advisory Council

   Sen. Ernie Lopez (R-Lewes) has been selected to serve as a new member on the Delaware Sea Grant Advisory Council.   The council serves as the statewide external advisory body to the Delaware Sea Grant College Program, and helps define priority coastal issues relevant to Delaware.
    Its members hail from marine-oriented businesses and industry, resource management and engineering firms, state government, public interest groups and the pre-college educational sector.
    “What an honor! I’m pleased to have been asked to join such a capable group of scientists, professionals and public servants who focus their mission in a non-partisan, evidence based fashion to support, sustain and enhance our coastal communities,” said Sen. Lopez, who will serve three years on the Advisory Council. “The 6th State Senate district has a unique and special bond with the sea and as someone who deeply cares about our environment, I look forward to sharing the mission of Sea Grant with our local Cape Region constituents who I am humbled to serve.”
   The University of Delaware was designated as a Sea Grant College in 1976 to promote the wise use, conservation and management of marine and coastal resources through high-quality research, education and outreach activities that benefit the public and the environment. UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment administers the program, which conducts research in priority areas ranging from seafood safety to coastal
