Stephen Schreck has a background in Marine Restoration. He moved to Bainbridge Island in 2017 to work with Puget Sound Restoration Fund. It was there that he gained an intimate knowledge of the Salish Sea and assisted with marine restoration projects. Turns out that this special place needs some assistance in restoring Olympia oysters, the Pinto Abalone and of course kelp!
Stephen founded Salish Sea Greens, a food company focused on offering sustainable kelp based foods, pop-up oyster bars and private dinner parties. Today, he also works with Eleven Winery as the sales manager and has an intimate knowledge of local wines and the wines that pair best with sea foods.
