Monterey's world-famous sardine industry depended on the courage and skill of cannery divers. Sardines were pumped ashore from floating hoppers through underwater pipes that had to be installed, repaired, replaced, realigned and maintained in order for the canneries of the Old Row to operate on a full six month season each year. Monterey could never have become "The Sardine Capital of the World" without their heroic exploits. Two Monterey divers, their named marked with an asterisk, died in the performance of their dangerous work under the waves of Monterey Bay.
