The species inhabiting Puget Sound are under increasing pressure from both human harvesting and environmental degradation. Information on the status of Puget Sound's biological resources and descriptions of the state agency programs for managing these resources are difficult to find. The report consists of articles written by resource managers to describe the status and trends of the resources for which they are responsible. In addition the management challenges being faced by each program manager are discussed. Examples of the management issues include: Are management priorities changing, and why or why not; Are existing regulations and enforcement efforts protecting our resources; Do management programs have adequate funding and staff; and Are there mechanisms in place to address new and emerging resource problems.
