History of the Key West Turtling Industry

Feb 23, 2016. 6:30 pm

MFMM Courtyard

Mel Fisher Maritime Museum Archaeologist Corey Malcom discusses how the long-running Key West turtling industry helped to shape the island’s identity and economy for over 150 years and how it almost wiped out the Green Sea Turtles. This unique story is examined through historical research, oral history, and the archaeological excavation of the Key West Turtle Kraals.
