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.

  1. The one thing that stood out to me: the moderator made a huge deal at the beginning of the webinar about how her organization was basing their green ratings for industrial aquaculture strictly on science. Yet when asked later in the conversation about where they were getting their information, she said something to the effect that they were getting basing ratings in part on documentation related to permitting process. As if the Army Corps is totally scientific and unbiased. The permitting process is political as it comes--not scientific. I lost any hope of respect for the Monterey Bay Aquarium when that was divulged. We need to get the exact wording and point that out. Can we get transcripts of the webinar somewhere--have looked and can't find.
