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.

Marty Griffinn on Assemblyman Levine's Abstaining from Voting on AB 976

Marty Griffin writes in the Marin IJ of his disappointment in Assemblyman Levine abstaining from voting on AB 976 which would have given the California Coastal Commission the ability to fine violators of the Coastal Act. He was not alone.

However people feel about AB 976, elected officials wherever they are from have a fiduciary duty to vote so their constituents know whether they are performing the job they were elected to do. To see who voted how, or not, California's Legislative Information site provides a record.
