Shrimping in North Carolina, 1865-1965
October 7, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
David Bennett, curator of maritime history, will explore the growth of the shrimp industry in North Carolina through changes in nets, boats, processing, and transportation. The talk will also discuss how the epicenter of the industry shifted over time from New Hanover County to Brunswick County and eventually to Carteret County. The free program is part of the museum’s Maritime Heritage Series, informal lectures held in the museum’s auditorium and simulcast via Facebook and Zoom. Registration is not required for the in-person program.
