The regulation of human activity in the aquatic ecosystems of the Salish Sea may be among the most complicated on earth. Local, state, and federal laws, agencies, rules, and regulatory procedures overlap, each with a unique legal history, lingo, and population of stakeholders. Understanding this complex system is critical for the development of on-the-ground projects, or in any attempt to increase the effectiveness or efficiency of regulation as a tool for conservation.
