BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Department of Marine Resources’ 2018 Marine Information Calendars now are available at locations along the Coast.


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


“The response to our photo contest was great for the second year in a row,” said Melissa Scallan, Public Affairs director for MDMR. “We have many talented photographers in South Mississippi, and we are proud to feature their pictures of life on the Coast.”


The winners of the photo contest are: Cover, Caroline Shaw; January, Laura Thompson; February, Brandi Fountain; March, Vernon Steele; April, Cindy Lamb; May, Darrin Stewart; June, Chris Markham; July, Jimmy Baker; August, Jane Anne Sawyer; September, Grace Schloegel; October, Tim Lawton; November, John Mitchell; December, Sandra Huynh.


This year’s calendar features the offices and programs that 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.


The calendars will be available at the following locations while supplies last. Calendars also will be distributed to Coast bait shops.
