Island County MRC - Who We Are
Island County Marine Resources Committee (MRC) is an advisory body to county government, established in 1999 under the federal Northwest Straits Initiative. We and our MRC colleagues in six other counties of northern Puget Sound comprise the Northwest Straits Commission. Congress established the commission as a fresh approach to addressing Puget Sound’s problems by fostering bottom-up, local, innovative solutions, rather than top-down mandates.
The members of our MRC are volunteers and represent diverse interests, industries and agendas. They bring a cross-section of disciplines and experience to this work, and are joined in a single, unifying passion to do what is best for our local marine environment.
