The West Coast Ballast Outreach Project works collaboratively with partnering organizations throughout the West Coast and Pacific Basin in the development of outreach programs and tools to manage aquatic invasive species (AIS) and ballast water issues. Initiated in 1999 and funded by the National Sea Grant College Program and the CALFED Bay-Delta Program, the project places a priority on facilitating communication and cooperation between private industry, regulators, and researchers concerned with ballast water and AIS management.
7/23/09 - Project Update
Since December 17th, 2008 the project has been under a bond freeze because of the State of California's budget crisis, and we have been unable to conduct any project activities. At the moment, there is no information available about when or if those funds will return. The project website will remain posted, but will not be updated until the budget is unfrozen.
