MDMR calendars available for pickup at locations across the Coast

The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources 2023 marine information calendars are available at locations along the Coast.

The agency held a photo contest earlier this year and those chosen are featured each month and on the cover as well as on collage pages in the calendar.

This year’s calendar features the offices and programs that the MDMR administers to protect those coastal resources.

The free calendar also contains such information as tide data, sunrise and sunset times, moon phases, artificial reef coordinates, size and possession limits for fish, boating safety requirements and Mississippi saltwater fish records. MDMR Public Affairs Director Charmaine Schmermund said, “We really enjoy the opportunity to open up the contest and let people send in their photos. We get a lot of great photos, and it really makes for a gorgeous calendar. So not only is it just that, but people really enjoy getting the calendars, so whenever we deliver them out every year, everybody gets really excited.”

There are 18 pick up locations across the Coast including here at WXXV. Visit DMR.ms.gov or call 228-374-5000 to find one near you.
