Geography made Biloxi a historic maritime hub of trade and travel- the seafood industry made it a vibrant, thriving community.

Thanks to the efforts of a variety of diverse ethnic groups, Biloxi was dubbed the Seafood Capital of the World at the turn of the twentieth century. By the 1920s, there were more than forty seafood factories occupying two bustling cannery districts. Cajuns with deep ties to the region, industrious Croatian immigrants and hardworking Vietnamese migrs all contributed to Biloxis seafood industry.
