General Note/Comment

  • One audio cassette. Interview with fisher (and spouse of a fisher) Carla Watkins. An Apalachicola native, she discusses local fishers; working on a mullet boat; fishing superstitions; boat naming; flounder fishing; shrimping; cooking seafood; recreation; and changes to Apalachicola. Between 1986 and 1987, a partnership between the Florida Folklife Program and the American Folk Center created the Maritime Heritage Survey Project. Focusing on the Gulf and Atlantic fishing cultures, and utilizing photographs, slides, oral histories, and on-site interviews, the survey climaxed with a demonstration area at the 1987 Florida Folk Festival. Also available on reel to reel (reels 6-7). The three main researchers were Nancy Nusz, Merri Belland, and project director David Taylor. Additional information on the project can be found in Taylor's project files in S 1716.
