Chinese Whispers: Bay Chronicles is a project by Rene Yung in collaboration with San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. This 2014 sailing expedition retraces the forgotten history of Chinese shrimp fishing around San Francisco Bay, once home to a thriving Chinese shrimp fishery. The Bay Chronicles team set sail on the NPS’s replica Bay junk Grace Quan in a series of voyages around SF Bay to locate major former Chinese shrimping sites. Public programs took place in Richmond, Hunters, and China Camp.
