In the early 20th century, Northeast Florida was home to a new sort of boat, one forged from Greek, Italian, African-American and native Floridian hands. The Florida trawler would become one of the most important vessels in U.S. maritime history, with the state supplying the world with shrimp trawlers of all types until the mid-1980s. Here, the enterprise grew into a multi-billion-dollar industry that contributed to some 23 foreign fishing fleets. In time, Florida would be responsible for the largest purpose-built wooden fishing fleet ever assembled.

A couple of the sites we enjoyed: Bon Secour History
