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.

Off Topic: Body of Tomales Bay Oyster Owner is Recovered from Tomales Bay

The body of Tod Friend, owner of Tomales Bay Oyster Company, was recovered from Tomales Bay. Mr. Friend was last seen heading out into Tomales Bay in his small flat bottom skiff, the latter found going in circles without Mr. Friend on board last Tuesday. The 70 year old was reported to have not been wearing a life jacket, a tragic lesson all should take to heart. Our sympathies go out to his family.
