"Wisconsin Sea Grant is doing a lot of great work to keep our water clean…so we can catch walleyes with our grandkids and our grandkids can catch walleyes with their grandkids." Charlie Berens, entertainer and supporter of clean water
"Without the Wisconsin Sea Grant program, I think it is safe to say that I would not have had the research opportunities, many of which led to funding by other agencies, that were the basis of my career – and launched those of all of my doctoral students."

J. Val Klump,Former dean, School of Freshwater Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
"Wisconsin Sea Grant's integrated assessment project was extremely valuable in bringing property owners together, educating us on causes of and sharing possible solutions for erosion...With Lake Michigan water levels continuing to rise, lakefront property owners need more of this type of support." Mike Scherman, property owner, Granton, WI
"Without Deidre Peroff and Wisconsin Sea Grant...there is no way that the research would be able to occur and a highly vulnerable sector of our population could be at risk in future extreme weather events." Tim Halbach, warning coordination meteorologist, National Weather Service Milwaukee/Sullivan
