TAMU - Driving the Blue Economy Logo

The Blue Economy relies upon a sustainable ocean and coastal environment that emerges when commercial activity is in balance with the capacity of ecosystems to support and sustain these while remaining healthy and resilient. As a special-purpose institution in marine and maritime studies, it is incumbant upon Texas A&M University at Galveston to lead efforts in the Blue Economy. We are training the next generation of students and engaging in scholarship that works towards protecting coastal communities, conserving marine life and ocean ecosystems, driving economic growth that includes smart shipping and safe ports, and creating an inclusive ecosystem with improved livelihoods.
