This is the recorded webinar of the second meeting of the Washington State Blue Ribbon Panel on Ocean Acidification, conducted on April 25, 2012. It has be edited to reduce the length.

Governor Christine Gregoire has convened a Blue Ribbon Panel to address the effects of ocean acidification on Washington's shellfish resources. This Panel is being convened under the auspices of the Washington Shellfish Initiative, the regional partnership created to implement the National Shellfish Initiative. Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), is strongly supportive of the Governor's Shellfish Initiative and this Panel, as expressed in her letter to Governor Gregoire dated February 7, 2012.

As announced in December 2011, the Washington Shellfish Initiative is an agreement among federal and state governments, tribes, and the shellfish industry, to restore and expand Washington's shellfish resources, to promote clean-water commerce, and to create family-wage jobs.

The initiative calls for:
• Expanding, promoting and improving shellfish aquaculture in Washington;
• Increasing opportunities for and improving access to public tidelands for recreational shellfish harvesting;
• Restoring native shellfish habitat and populations, such as the Olympia oyster and pinto abalone; and
• Improving and protecting water quality to help ensure healthy and safe shellfish for consumers.
