Bren Smith

Special guest

Bren is a former fisherman turned sustainable shellfish and seaweed farmer and entrepreneur. His company, Thimble Island Oyster Co., operates one of the first sustainable 3D ocean farms in the country. Nestled in the Thimble Islands of Long Island Sound, their 40-acre farm uses the entire water column to grow a variety of species—ranging from sugar kelp and oysters to mussels and scallops—and has emerged as a national model for hyper-local sustainable food production, ocean restoration, and economic development.
