SLOSEA (The San Luis Obispo Science and Ecosystem Alliance)
Vision: SLOSEA's vision is a healthy, resilient coastal ecosystem that provides for thriving and interacting populations of plant, animal and human communities.
Scope: The SLOSEA study area includes the Morro Bay Estuary and the nearshore coast and watersheds from Cape San Martin to Point Conception. Here is a map of SLOSEA's scope along California's Central Coast.
Origin: SLOSEA was established to link research at the Cal Poly Center for Coastal Marine Sciences (CCMS) to marine resource management and policy decisions along California's central coast by using a collaborative ecosystem-based approach.
