New Jersey’s Official Tall Ship

By Linda Tancs

New Jersey’s official tall ship is the A.J. Meerwald, a restored oyster dredging schooner used for onboard educational programs. It should come as no surprise that her home port is Bivalve, a word that just happens to refer to any number of species of mollusks, like oysters. Located in Cumberland County, the town was once the center of a thriving oyster industry. The ship was added to the National Register of Historic Places on November 7, 1995.
