Event Series Event Series: Shrimping Eco Tour

Shrimping Eco Tour

Brought to you by: Amelia River Cruises & Charters

An interactive exploration of Tiger Basin, the Shrimping Eco Tour coaches our guests on the operation of an Otter Trawl shrimp net. Historically developed in Fernandina, this net is similar to the nets used by the commercial shrimp industry today and part of the reason Fernandina Beach is known as the “Birthplace of the Modern Shrimping Industry”.

Deploying and retrieving the net is part of the hands-on experience. The catch will then be displayed in an on-board aquarium and each of the creatures will be identified and released back into the wild. We continue to explore the backwaters and tidal creeks that make up this estuary before returning to historic Fernandina Beach.
