SMP <br />Categories:LASMP Public Comment <br />Re: Jefferson County Shorlines Master Plan <br /> <br />Dear Mr. Stewart: <br /> <br />I am writing to comment on the Jefferson County Shoreline Master Plan. I live on the water, <br />and those of us fortunate enough to experience the beauty of our waterfront want to insure <br />that not only for ourselves but for all citizens. It is our duty to protect and defend our <br />waters from all threats, as we now see so clearly on the Gulf of Mexico. <br /> <br />The buffers are correct and necessary. With the rising sea level and increased frequency, <br />duration and intensity of storms anyone living as close as I do would appreciate it, if only <br />for their own safety. The SMP clearly states in language we can all understand the reasons <br />for rules about these protections. <br /> <br />The prohibition of net pen farming is long overdue. They should be outlawed everywhere. The <br />sea lice are a significant part of the reason why the fisheries are in trouble.The fishing <br />industry supports much of our econony and that of out neighbor to the north, Canada, and we <br />must to everything we can do to prevent further losses of fish stocks and habitat. I've <br />personally researched this issue and find it so alarming that I've brought it to the <br />attention of my local supermarket (QFC) that sells farmed fish. I don't touch the stuff, <br />EVER. You shouldn't either. <br />Ask if the source isn't identified. <br /> <br />Puget Sound and the Salish Sea are our treasure. We can't do too much to protect it. <br /> <br />And don't get me started on hyper corrosion in double-walled oil tankers. <br />( <br /> <br />Thanks very much, <br /> <br />R.
