Welcome to the Indian Island Marine Health Observatory, located in Fishing Bay on the Eastsound waterfront, Orcas Island, Washington.
IIMHO is an ongoing interactive research program involving marine scientists, local volunteers, and Orcas schools.
We work with local community, providing outreach and education while surveying marine life in the eelgrass meadows, beaches, and rocky intertidal areas of Indian Island and Fishing Bay.
