Center for the Blue Economy
Opening Paragraph

"Two-thirds of the world's GDP is produced in the ocean coastal zone. A center to focus on the particular economic and environmental challenges of this zone is long overdue."

-Professor Jason Scorse

The new Center for the Blue Economy will leverage the amazing marine science resources in the Monterey Bay area and complement them with rigorous economic and policy analysis. It will offer graduate students a concentration in ocean and coastal resource management, and will also serve as research hub for efforts to quantify the economic value of ocean and coastal resources.
