To leave a legacy and make Stuart a better place, longtime resident and avid fisherman, Ed S Sellian donated the 19ft tall sculpture to the City of Stuart.


"It seemed like a good way for me to give something back to Stuart, to a community that's been good to me and my family," Sellian told TCPalm in 2002. "I want it to be something the people of Stuart can be proud of." It has become the icon of the Sailfish Capital of the World.


Locals and visitors alike enjoy the monument in Stuart's Downtown, 

The circle at SW Joan Jefferson Way,

In 2023 the iconic
Stuart Sailfish Fountain turned 20 years old.

“Making art and making a difference. This stuff means something. It has a purpose,” the artist/conservationist said.
