Shrimp Boat City

Written by Ed Long and Brendan Burke and published by the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum, this book chronicles 100 years of the shrimping industry in St. Augustine. Not only does it tell the stories of the men who made their living catching shrimp, the book also documents the associated industries like boat building and marine supplies. The stories are fascinating and the photographs are amazing. There are discussions and diagrams showing how the technology behind net design changed over the years. You’ll learn how the familiar design of shrimp boats evolved too.

Shrimp Boat City [$24.95] can be purchased at the Lighthouse gift shop or online.
