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.

Hot Weather and Lowest Daylight Tides of the Year Coming June 5 and 6

A warm weekend and low tides.
It doesn't get any better.
(Tide table from NOAA's Tide Prediction)

Unseasonably hot weather this coming weekend combines with the lowest daylight tides of the year in south Puget Sound. Tides will be close to 4 feet below the average daily tides on Sunday (-3.37 at 12:32 PM) and Monday (-3.37 at 1:16 PM). There's a world rarely seen about to be exposed. Get out and experience part of what makes up the treasure of Puget Sound.
