How can Rhode Island invest in its blue economy as a means to grow sustainably?

Rhode Island has always supported and benefited from its blue economy and marine-based businesses that rely on the state’s considerable coastal and ocean resources. Today, this $5 billion-plus economy employs more than 6% of Rhode Islanders across seven sectors. The future of a sustainable blue economy in the Ocean State depends on a rich quality of place, the protection and management of resilient coastal and ocean assets, a skilled workforce and thriving innovation.
