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.

Drakes Bay Oyster Company: Their Corporate Vision for Drakes Estero

 

The Drakes Bay Oyster Company has revealed their 
corporate vision for what a seashore wilderness should be.
(from Drakes Bay Oyster Company's Facebook site, 8/22)

As they say, "What's wrong with this picture?" Nothing if you believe commercial operations should be allowed to exist in a seashore wilderness area. In the case of Drakes Estero, grow out bags for as far as the eye can see are apparently what the Drakes Bay Oyster Company envisions the future of Drakes Estero to be. Is this really what Marin County wants to be responsible for?
 
Save our shoreline wilderness area.
 
Help save Drakes Estero from 
corporate profiteering.
