Passionfish is owned and operated by Chef Ted Walter and his wife Cindy Walter. They are vocal advocates for sustainable seafood education. The Walters helped launch the sustainable seafood movement in Monterey County through legislative advocacy, public presentations, and educational forums for culinary students, restaurateurs and chefs. Through their efforts the City of Pacific Grove has revised its grease trap ordinance and adopted a Sustainable Seafood Resolution. The Walters also advocate for ecologically sound fishing practices and the ban of non-recyclable products.
