The COASST Consortium is a group of data users supporting long-term data collection, curation, interpretation and use in the coastal marine environment of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. 

Consortium funding secures access to specific COASST natural resource datasets. Partners may elect to receive raw or formatted data files, data maps and other data summaries, and reports of data collection effort, among other products.


COASST would like to thank our current and past sponsors; the agencies and organizations who contribute financially to sustain our basic operations and support our special research and outreach projects.


COASST depends on partnerships with agencies and organizations providing on-the-ground organizational support. The following groups lend people, expertise, logistics, and research resources, working with us to recruit and manage our vast volunteer network much more effectively.
