This painting depicts a trawler as it makes its way through Winyah Bay – an estuary created by the meeting of the Waccamaw River, the Pee Dee River, the Sampit River, and the Black River in Georgetown County. The historic port city of Georgetown sits on Winyah Bay and is the home of the annual Winyah Bay Heritage Festival, which celebrates fishing and hunting in South Carolina.
Shrimping is an important part of our state’s economy. There are many local shrimpers who make a living providing fresh, tasty, wild-caught shrimp to residents around our state. Learn more about shrimping in South Carolina and the importance of buying locally-harvested seafood.
