 Shannon Point Marine Center (SPMC) The Shannon Point Marine Center (SPMC) supports and promotes Western Washington University’s instructional and research programs in the marine sciences; provides access to facilities for visiting scientists from around the world; supports supervised, independent research for undergraduates nationwide via federally-funded programs; and promotes ocean literacy among the general public through targeted K-12 and public education initiatives.

In support of these efforts, SPMC has developed excellent facilities for field and laboratory instruction and research, as well as a long-term physical and chemical water quality database.
