National Fisherman

COMMERCIAL TWP. — The Bayshore Center at Bivalve, in conjunction with the Port Norris Historical Society and the McBride Enterprise, announced plans to construct a Watermen's Memorial on the waterfront in Bivalve.
 
The planned memorial, which will be located on the premises of the Bayshore Center, will serve as a place of solemn reflection, and will commemorate all those who have been lost to the bay over the generations. 
 
It will be constructed from all local materials, and will be impervious to the elements, maintaining a permanent presence on the waterfront.
 
Every working waterfront in the world has stories, and memories, of men and women whose lives were claimed by the sea. Passed down through the years, these tales serve as cautionary reminders of the dangers that incumbent upon anyone who plies a living from the vast and mighty waters.
 
Such tales have remarkable power, passing into local legend and often lending names and histories to familiar landmarks, serving as points of reference for watermen to use in navigation and reminding them of the ever-present threat posed by wind, tide and storm.
 
New Jersey's Delaware Bay region is no different. Though the bay itself is often placid compared to the fury of the open oceans, over the years many men and women have been lost, shipwrecked, drowned or missing, passing into the bay as their stories pass into lore.
