Hundreds of Central West Florida Fishermen have Lost Their
The 'Florida Fishermen Lost at Sea' Memorial will honor them.
communities in North America have a memorial for our fishermen that
fish their lives in this dangerous profession dedicated to bringing fresh
seafood to our tables.
Many lives are lost every year with no memory for future generations
to see and appreciate the ultimate price paid by these brave
individuals. Central West Florida fishermen harvest 80% of the Gulf
Grouper landed and these fishermen need proper representation.
John’s Pass Historic Fishing Village & Boardwalk Merchant's
Association and the Old Salt
Fishing Foundation have teamed up to head the Florida Fishermen Lost
at Sea Memorial for Central West Florida.
A fund Raising Campaign
is underway to build a fitting memorial to these many brave
fishermen at historic John's Pass.
