Help us learn about the Bay! Millions of measurements of water quality have been made in the Bay. These data reside in a publicly accessible database ( We have learned a lot from these data but not all of the data have been analyzed. 

This year’s scenario is to imagine you are a public health official in the Bay Area. For public outreach efforts, you need data on where and what types of fish caught in San Francisco Bay are less safe to eat. If possible, you would also like to identify possible ways to reduce fish contamination in the future.

Cash prizes will be awarded to high school and university students for the best graphics or analysis. More information is available on the SFEI website:
