Fr. Antun Greek form Crete taught the people of Krapanj the way to harvest, recognize and process sponges. At the beginning, sponges were gathered only with a trident in smaller depths but slowly later diving apparatus were introduced. Towards the end of the 19th century the sponge harvesting crew consisted of eight people of which two or three were divers, two rowers, two working the air pump and the remaining two tread, washed and dried the gathered sponges. At that time, the harvesting of sponges was forbidden every third year. So that sponge harvesting could advance, in 1893 a cooperative was founded to whom maritime authorities from Trieste donated a diving apparatus. At the end of the 19th century there were about 14 divers.

In 1924 the government prohibited the harvesting of sponges to crews that had the necessary apparatus for depths lower than 16m so that crews who did not have them could equally take part in the harvesting. Until 1940 the cooperative had about twenty diving apparatus and crews. About 400 people made a living out of this work.

Until 1912 the sponges were not processed but rather they were just tread and dried which decreased the value of the sponge. In the above-mentioned year, sodium sulfate was introduced, which helped remove calcium compounds, giving the sponges a white-yellowish color and increased its value. Today, 1 kg of unprocessed sponges costs approximately $70.
