University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute
University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute

Welcome to the UW Aquatic Sciences Center

The University of Wisconsin Aquatic Sciences Center (ASC) is headquartered in the Graduate School of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. ASC administers two institutes with complementary missions. The Sea Grant Institute and Water Resources Institute both support multidisciplinary research, education and outreach for the protection and sustainable use of Wisconsin’s water resources. The center was established in 1999 as a partnership that is unique in the nation – no other state’s Sea Grant and Water Resources programs are similarly joined. It is a highly efficient and cost-effective state-federal model for drawing out the best from Wisconsin’s aquatic scientists who, collaboratively, make a difference statewide, nationwide and around the world.
