Thanks to the Jefferson County Marine Resources Committee for sending along this photo of their volunteers & divers clearing anchor lines for eelgrass buoys.

The Marine Resources Committee (MRC) is an advisory group to the Board of County Commissioners and operates under the umbrella of the Northwest Straits Commission. The MRC members are citizen volunteers who are committed to work closely with other community members – homeowners, business owners, recreational enthusiasts, commercial and sport fishers – to reduce or stop the decline of the marine habitat in our region.

The Port has been involved with MRC since its inception, and partners with them on a variety of projects.
