Warrior Shrimp Boat

Warrior Shrimp Boat – Port Royal, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Beaufort County Photos  |  Warrior Shrimp Boat

South Carolina shrimpers, while struggling to compete with the cheap, imported shrimp flooding the marketplace, still persevere in Port Royal. The Warrior, pictured below, is appropriately named, since many local shrimpers must fight an uphill battle against imports in order to continue their way of life.

Cecilia Foster Morett took this picture in October 2009. She writes:

I grew up in Port Royal and had an uncle who shrimped from there. I’ve always loved the beauty of the boats. We were in the area on 10/17/09, and I stopped by the docks for a look. Warrior was there … her name and appearance summarizing the shrimping industry … fighting to make a living and scarred in the process.

My “day job” is bookkeeping, but I work as a striker on shrimp boats in my area for fun. No pay except the sheer enjoyment that the seven years has given me. I’ll be 60 years old this year and plan to keep going as long as the guys will take me!”
