The University of North Florida Fisherfolk Oral History Collection holds interviews conducted by University of North Florida honors students in 1995. The Collection provides insight into fishing, shrimping, clamming, scalloping, oystering, and boatbuilding in some of northeastern Florida’s seaside communities.
Topics include federal and state regulations, out-of-state competition, pollution in local waterways caused by development, lack of interest by younger generations in these maritime occupations, weather conditions and currents, fish stories, and technology, among many others subjects.
