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 Cleanup Progresses

Drakes Estero
 
The Press Democrat writes on March 23 about the ongoing cleanup of Drakes Bay Oyster Company's operation left behind for taxpayers to pay for. When completed the question of how significant a commercial shellfish operation is to a marine ecosystem, positive or negative, can be answered.
 
You clean it up. I'm going to go start a restaurant.
Thank you Mr. Lunny.
