Guest speaker: Steve Plant, CT Cultured Oysters and the Noank Aquaculture Cooperative.
A lifelong resident of Connecticut who spent the better part of his youth fishing on LI Sound. His father was a biology teacher in Stamford and gave Steve his earliest taste of the marine environment. Steve spent the first 15 years of his professional life on Wall Street at a couple of the world’s most successful hedge funds, including, two years as a commodity analyst at West Course Capital. At West Course he did some venture capital analysis on several aquaculture investments thanks to his interest in fishing and fisheries. Steve eventually took a job at one of the companies. Then in the spring of 1999 started his own company CT Cultured Oysters.
