MBC Applied Environmental Sciences was founded in 1969 as Marine Biological Consultants, Inc. in response to a growing need by industry & government for professional biologists to conduct integrated studies of the marine environment.

MBC policy emphasizes the preparation of thorough, accurate, and readable reports. Scientists, technical writers, and graphics illustrators are assigned to each project in order to present the results and conclusions in the clearest and most effective manner which is technically correct & understandable to the non-specialist.
