The Promotion Society is looking for members. Become a member of the association and help us with various projects.
In 2008, former employees of the Fischkombinat Rostock founded the working team "Tradition Deep-Sea Fishery Rostock", and on the 8th of October 2015 the founding meeting of Deep-Sea Fishery Rostock Working Group took place in Rostock-Schmarl.
The Shipbuilding and Seafaring Museum has a long-standing partnership with the deep-sea fishermen of the region. In 2010, a large special exhibition on the DRESDEN was opened for the 60th anniversary of the Rostock fisheries, which was developed and supported by numerous former deep-sea fishermen. Finally, in 2014, a permanent exhibition on deep-sea fisheries in Rostock was opened on the DRESDEN and is supervised by the association.
Rostock Sailors (registered association)
Sailors who once sailed across the oceans on the ships of the German sea shipping company Rostock are the most important eyewitnesses for us, because they can bring their personal experience to what is displayed in the museum.
In 1996, former sailors founded an association with the aim of maintaining maritime traditions in general and of preserving the history of the German sea shipping company Rostock in particular. As former Type IV sailors, their primary focus was on the 10,000-ton DRESDEN, both as a technical monument and as a museum ship.
The members of the association support exhibition projects of the museum and help with conservation work. Along with other supporters, they made it possible to purchase a new ship's bell and an electric tyfon, and supported the radar on the bridge to get a new screen. On various occasions, the association members also take care of the flags of the museum vessel and are happy to answer questions from the visitors of the ship.
The members of the association meet regularly to chat about old times, to discuss the present and to make plans for the future.
On the 4th of October 2010, the association decided to open up to all sailors - whether former or present.
Maritime Radio-FX-Intern Rostock (registered association)
The association represents the interests of maritime radio certificate-holders, maritime-oriented radio amateurs and maritime radio enthusiasts. As early as 1981, the then active radio officers of the trading and fishing fleet of the GDR founded a regular meetup of radio officers. In 1991, the association Maritime Radio-FX-Intern Rostock emerged from this meetup. Today, around 70 members of the former 350 members remain and have formed a group focused on traditions and history. The main area of interest is the maritime amateur radio in the original radio room of the traditional ship, the monthly meetups which often include presentations, and the supervision and further development of the exhibition "100 Years of International Maritime Radio" in the museum.
