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 Claims of "Stewardship" Challenged by Underwater Video

It's time for the California Coastal Commission
to tell Drakes Bay Oyster Company to clean up the mess
they created on the submerged bottom lands of Drakes Estero
so the Phillip Burton Wilderness area may be completed.

DBOC plastic tubes litter Drakes Estero.

The reality underwater is seen differently than what's seen in an office from San Francisco
Drakes Bay Oyster Company attorneys and public relation firms continuing to claim DBOC has been a "good steward" of Drakes Estero needs to stop. This viewpoint, created from the legal and PR offices in San Francisco, is directly challenged in a recently released underwater video. The shortened version of the original is found on The Coastodian, a site devoted to plastic pollution in  northern California waters [click here].

created by Congress in 1976.
