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.

Geoduck for China

Tacoma's The News Tribune writes on resistance to a 25 acre geoduck farm in Burley Lagoon proposed by Taylor Shellfish. Tidelands currently used to produce clams and oysters sold in the US would be converted to grow geoduck exported to China, requiring 42,000 PVC tubes per acre in the process.
