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.

Permit Application for Sohn Industrial Geoduck Farm Now Published

This photo is of the Hammond geoduck farm, run by Allen Shellfish, just around the bend from us. 

One of the biggest concerns is the cummulative impacts of industrial geoduck farms that take more and more of the tideland. 90% of Totten Inlet tidelands now contain shellfish aquaculture, primarily industrial geoduck aquaculture.

Thurston County published the Notice of Application for the Sohn industrial geoduck farm on Zangle Cove on 3/12/15. We received a copy in the mail today. April 1, 2015 is the deadline for comment.
