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: KCET from LA Asks Who Cleans Up Drakes Estero?

Driven by underwater images from the Coastodian.org KCET has published a piece which asks who is going to clean up the mess left from Drakes Bay Oyster Company's operation? The Coastodian's Richard James asked this question to the California Coastal Commission, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and the National Park Service, but has received no reply.
