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.

June 3, 6PM: City of Shelton to Repeal Old SMP and Adopt New SMP

June 3 at 6PM the City of Shelton will repeal its old Shoreline Master Program (SMP) and adopt the new SMP. Included will be an amendment allowing for conversion of up to 10 boathouses in the Oakland Bay Marina to shellfish nurseries where shellfish (oysters, clams) will be grown out to a larger size before being spread throughout Puget Sound.

The meeting will be held at the Shelton Civic Center, 525 West Cota Street, Shelton.
