Steve and Sarah Malinowski have been farming oysters on Fishers Island for over 30 years.  Fishers Island oysters can be found on the menus of some of New York City’s finest restaurants and many east coast oyster farmers rely on their seed every year.  NY Harbor School’s aquaculture teacher and Chief Oyster Officer as well as one of the co-founders and project leaders of the BOP, Pete Malinowski, relies heavily on his parents’ knowledge and expertise to inform all aspects of oyster and algae production as well as the in water ecosystem restoration. They provide brood stock for BOP and real aquaculture work experience for NY Harbor students. They support BOP and NY Harbor Foundation through their 1% for the Planet membership.
