Hi, and thanks for doing an AMA. Writing from Seattle here.

I've read that one of the expected effects of 'the big one' is going to be a rapid lateral shift in the entire coastal area of OR-WA. I mean, the entire coast would shift horizontally in a very violent and rapid way. Is this a "likely scenario" or is this something that is known with some reasonable certainty? Could you talk a bit more about this lateral shift?

Am I even making sense?

Thanks :)

I have a few questions if you don't mind. What fishing gears are the most problematic for manta ray bycatch? Is it a common gear? Have you seen any declines on the population? And where does the 10% number come from?
