Mel Fisher

“The mere mention of Mel Fisher’s name in any of Key West’s rum-soaked watering holes starts arguments. Whatever the locals say in this Conch Republic of smugglers, millionaires, and edge-of-the-world dreamers, Fisher is a true American hero. Larger than life, he’s the greatest legend and mythmaker here since Hemingway walked Duval Street.” —”Mel Fisher Treasure Hunter,” Sub Aqua Journal, Nov./Dec. 1993
