This scientific note provides a summary of a new partnership developing between two groups who have found a common area of interest focused on the value of building a better network for real-time coastal ocean observing data and information and how such a network may inform research on ocean acidification. The note examines the development of the partnership over the past year, which is providing mutually beneficial opportunities for interaction. Shellfish growers are able to learn about a federal and regional framework providing integrated data along our coasts, and the Integrated Ocean Observing System program is able to learn directly from one of its stakeholders who demonstrates the clear economic and scientific value of coastal, ocean, and Great Lakes observing systems. By working together, the two are finding ways to improve our coastal observing networks and to support research on ocean acidification.
