Theo de Koning
Owner and ship captain Theo is a fifth generation Dutch mussel farmer, who learned the business from his grandfather in the Netherlands. A graduate of an advanced fisheries college in the Netherlands, he is using the most advanced technology and best practices for fisheries management as a steward of this valuable resource, and passing that knowledge down to the next generation.
Alex de Koning
Eldest son, Alex joined the family business after graduating from the University of Maine with a degree in engineering. His enthusiasm and knowledge fueled the business' growth, leading to the 2016 move into a new, larger facility. Alex's vision led to improved efficient production that shortens the "ship to shore" time so the company can supply customers with the freshest products possible.
Mary de Koning
Having married into the company, Mary has taken on many jobs and responsibilities in the past as Alex's wife. She has done everything from picking and sorting mussels on the belt, to building shelves and furniture when the new facility was built. She has supported the crew, and has been Alex's sounding board on equipment ideas for 12 years. After all this time, Mary has joined the company full time to take over as head of sales from Fiona, (who couldn't be more excited!).
