The study covers Croatian fishing and related activities in America. The Gulf Coast includes Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. The Pacific Coast covers California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Western Canada. Other subjects include Shipyards and Boatbuilders, Inventions, Fish and Oyster Saloons and Restaurants, Captains, Mariners, Disasters and Islands, Discovery, Naval, Piracy and War. Numerous Biographies and a substantial Bibliography.

The Index is by Name, Date, Occupation or Activity, Location, Town of Origin and Reference Source and was abstracted from cemeteries, voting registers, census, society records, church records, city directories and other sources. Includes 11,000 individuals.

A major accomplishment of this study was to properly identify Croatian immigrants as Croatians from Croatia. From 1750 to 1999 almost all Croatians in the South and West were recorded on official documents as Austrian, Turkish, Italian, Venetian, Hungarian, Yugoslav and locally as Slavonians.

Reading this book will leave one with the impression that they were and are Croatians. Very little reference is made to a person having come from Austria, Yugoslavia etc as a country, and when reference was found of such, it was changed to Croatia.

The author endeavored to identify the immigrantís exact place of birth, if possible. Most came from Dalmatia and Istria. Identification was most difficult from 1750-1920 due to misspelling of names by American Census takers, Voting Registers, Cemeteries and other official records.
