The Maui Nui Marine Resource Council (MNMRC) was formed in 2007, to bring human actions into balance with ecological principles through education, collaboration and advocacy so that our near shore waters will be restored to health with abundant life and sustained for future generations.
They are a community group of 28 voting members and non-voting advisors. Voting members represent a broad spectrum of the community, including commercial and recreational fishers, ocean tourism businesses, scientists, educators, cultural practitioners and most regions of Maui County.
