History of Fishing in Ponce Inlet, Florida
March 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Ormond Beach Historical Society is hosting their 2022-2023 live Speaker Series program. The ninth lecture shares the history of fishing in Ponce Inlet. From the Timucuan Indians to the modern-day fleet and conservation efforts, Chad Macfie shares the stories and pictures from the families, fishermen, and locals who created the backbone of Ponce Inlet as it is known today.
Chad Macfie started his career at the Florida Museum of Natural History working in the fish collection and as a shark fisheries biologist. Macfie joined the Marine Science Center in 2005 and also trains divers and students with the Volusia County’s Artificial Reef Program.
This program is free, including an opening reception with refreshments at 9:30AM. Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the building, and the handicap entrance is at the rear of the building.
Funding is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Ormond Beach Historical Society.
