The Tarpon Springs Flect is comprised of 125 or more boats, manned by about 500 men, 150 of whom are divers, and most of whom are natives of the Isles of the Mediterranea. After the sponges are brought in by the diving and booking boats, they are sold thru the local Sponge Exchange, said to be the largest in the world
