A new mobile app from the Alabama Water Institute and the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium provides a fast, interactive way to find important weather, boating, safety and fishing information for the Gulf of Mexico.

A student-led project from the University of Alabama’s Management Information Systems program, the app allows users to instantly access information about weather, tides, buoy stations, water safety and fishing regulations based on the user’s location. The app is available by searching “MAPP-AWI” on iOS and Android.
