We are a group of citizens opposed to the continued expansion of industrial geoduck aquaculture on the fragile tidelands of Puget Sound. The shellfish industry believes that all available tidelands should be used for the intensive production of shellfish, particularly, geoducks, to sell primarily to markets outside of the country. Please join with us to protect these sensitive wildlife areas in Puget Sound.

Please sign the Coalition Petition to Protect Puget Sound Habitat Petition to stop enabling plastic and pesticide pollution in Puget Sound.

Juvenile Bald Eagle Caught in Geoduck Net

These fishermen are attempting to rescue a juvenile Bald Eagle from a geoduck net on Harstene Island in 2006. This is what is coming to Zangle Cove. We have a resident Bald Eagle family that has lived on Zangle Cove for as long as most can remember. The Bald Eagles have been photographed fishing on the tideland in the exact location of the proposed geoduck farm in Zangle Cove. The description of the project includes the use of these nets and 43,500 tubes per acre of tideland.

Please send your objections to the operation to Thurston County Planner Tony Kantas", Email:
