Mississippi Department of Marine Resources 2017 Marine Information Calendar

For years, the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources has provided an annual marine information calendar to residents and tourists. This year we held our first ever photo contest to help raise awareness of and appreciation for our unique coastal landscape and received more than 100 entries. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photographs.
