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.

Good morning neighbor: Sunday morning, 7AM
 
Industrial operations in Puget Sound tidelands at all hours of the day and night is not the "balance" the Shoreline Management Act was created for.
 
If you can dive harvest there is no
reason for midnight geoduck harvesting.
Sediment plumes are from 2 divers
from each raft, harvesting geoduck.

Yes, we see you and yes, we hear you.
So does what's left of the wildlife.
Shellfish operator at 4AM
with floodlights. Good for wildlife?
 
Get involved. The shellfish industry is, and has been for years and what they see in France is what they think is good for Puget Sound.
 
Mussel platforms in France.
