I traveled to Thorndyke Bay in Poulsbo Washington to document the daily duties of staff working for Baywater Shellfish Co a few months ago. This particular shoot was very inspiring! Everyone working on the beach that day was passionate and knowledgeable, I instantly started learning about the anatomy shellfish and how the staff sustainably maintain the land and beach. I was extremely impressed with the Baywater team’s ability to work in harmony with the environment, adjusting important details of work in order to clean, harvest and manage their shellfish crop when the tide allowed them to and conditions were just right. Thank you Nature Conservancy for helping bring awareness to these unique people and the great work they do to sustainably provide shellfish for the people of the Northwest!
