Our mission is to protect the habitat of Puget Sound tidelands from the underregulated expansion of new and intensive shellfish aquaculture methods. These methods were never anticipated when the Shoreline Management Act was passed. They are transforming the natural tideland ecosystems in Puget Sound and are resulting in a fractured shoreline habitat. In South Puget Sound much of this has been done with few if any meaningful shoreline permits and with limited public input. It is exactly what the Shoreline Management Act was intended to prevent.

Get involved and contact your elected officials to let them you do not support aquaculture's industrial transformation of Puget Sound's tidelands.

Get Involved In the Public Process: June 27 Meeting

GIG HARBOR PENINSULA ADVISORY COMMISSION
6:30 P.M., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27, 2012
City of Gig Harbor Council Chambers
3510 Grandview, Gig Harbor, WA 98335
(click here for agenda)

A meeting on Pierce County's Shoreline Master Program will be held tonight at 6:30. Speakers are limited to 3 minutes and while repetition of comments is discouraged your statement of support is encouraged. Arrive early.

Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there.

The shellfish industry is heavily involved in crafting local Shoreline Master Plans. These regulations control how the tideland developments and structures these corporations want are permitted. The public process is the only way you'll be able to influence how these corporate developments and structures in Puget Sound's tidelands are permitted, or not. If you care, get involved. The shellfish industry is, more than you know.
