Maritime Mingle: Stories from the Gulf Coast Commercial fishing industry in Cortez: Environmental Changes
The Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum is hosting an engaging conversation to explore what can be learned from the water ways that surround the Florida coast and those who live and work there. Fishing communities depend upon healthy waterways. The men and women whose livelihoods directly reflect any environmental changes are incredibly connected to the ebbs and flows. What can be learned from their stories?
Get ready to “maritime mingle” with a conversation focused on the environmental changes that the commercial fishing industry has witnessed over the years in the Gulf of Mexico. At this fun, interactive discussion, each table will “speed date” with commercial fisherman, fish house workers, and others who play an important role in the industry.
This event is free to the public. RSVP required. Please email Kristin Sweeting at [email protected] to secure your spot. Funding for this program was provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Friends of the Florida Maritime Museum.
Date/time: April 23 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm
