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.

Our Lovely Geoducks

Other than a great deal of money for the shellfish industry, what are we filling up our tidelands with plastics and liquefying our beaches for?

Geoducks are air-freighted to elite markets in China and Hong Kong because geoduck are considered to be an aphrodisiac. We are not feeding the poor and the hungry. The shellfish industry, with the blessing of the Puget Sound Partnership, is ruining our tidelands in order to exploit virility fantasies.
