Mermaids are the stuff of marine fantasy, and that fantasy has existed for centuries. Contemporarily popularized by Disney’s the Little Mermaid, these fantastical beings have been sweetening and sometimes haunting the dreams of sailors, pirates and fisherman. With the fanaticism that already surrounds the ocean lifestyle, it’s no wonder mermaids have become so popular.
