Marine Sciences in Carteret County

For more than 100 years, the study of Marine Science has been part of life of Carteret County, and the numerous marine science education and research institutions and agencies here have been an important player in marine research, nationally and internationally.

The members of the Marine Science and Education Partnership (MSEP) are a coalition of directors and leaders of marine science institutions and agencies and other concerned Carteret County leaders.

Members represent eighteen marine science and education operations in Carteret County and North Carolina.

The group first convened in 2002 at the invitation of the Carteret County Economic Development. Members meet regularly to discuss roles and impacts of our universities and agencies within the community and across the country, and how they can work together.
