“On the Waterfront? Can Traditional Industries Survive Explosive Change?” in the Spring 2014 issue of Coastal Heritage, from the South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium, is a nine-page article discussing changes to fishing and shipping operations along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, which runs from Virginia to Florida. While the focus is on South Carolina, the article includes information and historical background relevant to states and localities all along the waterway. One particularly useful item is a discussion of the evolution of container ships and the consequences for Atlantic coast ports.
A two-page companion article, “Come on in, the water’s fine,” describes some of the history of beachfront recreation.
