Port Washington, NY January 17, 2014. Long Island Traditions and the Freeport School District are continuing their partnership that explores the traditional maritime culture in the age of Sandy and the decline of commercial and recreational fishing on Long Island. The partnership includes the 4th grade classes at the New Visions and Bayview elementary schools.
Using the fishing industry as a model, students will examine the occupational and recreational traditions of fishermen on Long Island, focusing on Nassau County’s north and south shores. They will learn about the tools and traps, boats and nets, rods and bait that are used by recreational and commercial fishermen from various communities on Long Island, identified by folklorist Nancy Solomon, executive director of Long Island Traditions.
Students will learn about the designs of tools used by fishermen such as nets, decoys, traps, fishing rods, boats and other objects that incorporate traditional design elements. They will learn about the traditional design principles embodied in these tools and how they have changed over time.
