California Shellfish Initiative.
The demand for shellfish in California currently exceeds supply, and, what’s more, the presence of shellfish improves water quality. The Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association - an industry organization that we are proud to be active members of for nearly twenty years – has invited interested parties to work together for the benefit of one and all to meet demand while improving the marine environment.
The California Shellfish Initiative is a project to restore and expand California’s shellfish resources, collaboratively.
The initiative will bring together shellfish growers, local, state, and federal resource managers and environmental leaders with the goals of: protecting and enhancing marine habitats, increasing shellfish habitat and jobs, improving agency coordination and communication, and strengthening coastal economies.
