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.

Legacy of Our Ancestors: Treaty Resources of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe

Tribal Elder Marlin Holden


A short film conceived by Jamestown S'Klallam Tribal Elder Marlin Holden and filmed by videographer Al Bergstein provides a historical insight into the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe of north Puget Sound. 'Legacy of Our Ancestors: Treaty Resources of the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe' includes descriptions of times before settlement by western civilizations and the transition to the current Tribal Nation. Treaty rights to the natural resources and court decisions are an important part of the film.

While focused on the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe it is equally informative and applicable to all current Tribal nations of the Salish Sea. While showings are only scheduled in the northern part of Puget Sound, discussions have begun for other locations. Current dates are April 8, 9, 10 and 16.
