Oyster Farm, Dungeness Bay

An oyster farm is proposed in Dungeness Bay by The Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe. The Washington State Department of Natural Resources leases subtidal lands to private businesses and this has been an important area historically for oyster farming since before 1953. The tribe purchased an oyster farm here in 1990 and operated it for a few years before it was decertified due to contamination in the bay. The bay has seen significant cleanup efforts over the last few decades and the tribe now seeks to reestablish an oyster farm on the same site. Read more here and here.
