Ocean Science Trust

Ocean Science Trust was created by the California Ocean Resources Stewardship Act (CORSA), passed in 2000. Recognizing the value of independent science and the opportunity to better connect the wealth of scientific expertise in academia with policy and management decisions in the state, CORSA mandates the creation of a science trust ‘to seek and provide funding for ocean resource science projects and to encourage coordinated, multiagency, multi-institution approaches to ocean resource science’.
