The Washington State Legislature established the Marine Resources Advisory Council (MRAC) in 2013 to maintain a sustainable and coordinated focus on ocean acidification.
The MRAC delivers on that goal by:
Advising and working with the Washington Ocean Acidification Center on statewide needs with respect to ocean acidification
Delivering recommendations to the Governor and Legislature on ocean acidification
Seeking public and private funding resources to support the Council’s recommendations
Assisting in conducting public education activities regarding ocean acidification
