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.

February 11, 6PM - Mason County Shoreline Master Program Update Meeting

Mason County's Planning Advisory Commission will hold its 2nd of 3 workshops to discuss the update of their Shoreline Master Program on February 11 at 6PM. The third will be held February 25, also at 6PM.

Date/Time: February 11, 6PM

Location: 411 N. Fifth Street, Shelton in the commission chambers.

February 11 topics: Aquaculture, boating facilities and shoreline stabilization/modification.
Of interest will be how the county addresses their concerns about docks and bulkheads and whether the growing number of structures used by the shellfish industry covering a far greater square foot area (PVC, predator nets, grow-out bags, floating aquaculture facilities) will come under the same level of scrutiny.
