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.

Willapa Bay Experiences a Commercial Natural Oyster Set

The oysters are back. For the first time in 8 years there has been a natural set of oysters on a commercial scale in Willapa Bay. [read article here] Whether a result of water conditions or natural adaptation or a combination is unclear. What is clear is that sometimes nature has a way of taking care of problems without our help. Hopefully next year will be even better.
