The Italian Heritage Society of Monterey Presents
Bounty of the Sea
The Italian Heritage Society of Monterey for years have been hoping to purchase a building to display numerous photographs fishing items and stories that are associated with the our culture and early history in Monterey. It has become apparent in recent years that was not going to happen due to the high cost of real estate in the local area. So we have embarked on a joint effort with Monterey History and Art Association to present a display at the Stanton Center in Monterey called Bounty of the Sea.
It is our intention to present stories, photographs and fishing items of those who fished the waters of Monterey Bay, which include Indigenous tribes, the Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese Whalers and Italian/Sicilian fishers.
Welcome to Our Museum Display
The Following Displays may be viewed at the Stanton Center located at Fisherman's Wharf Plaza in Monterey.
