Over twenty hours of material was recorded in 2001-2002 by AGP Video Productions of Morro Bay. The filming was originally recorded onto mini DV tapes and then transferred to a digital format. The project was funded primarily by the Central Coast Maritime Museum Association (now the Morro Bay Maritime Museum) with additional grant funding from the California Sea Grant program. The interviews were coordinated and conducted by local commercial fisheries consultant, Mr. Steve Rebuck and Cultural Anthropologist, Dr. Monica Hunter. No portion of these interviews may be copied, downloaded, or used for commercial purposes without the Morro Bay Maritime Museum Board of Trustees’ written permission.
