History

Seen across the Gulf of Mexico and featured in the movie Forrest Gump, shrimp boats are known by the phrase “"By night they work the nets, and by day they rest and clean”." They anchor up just after dawn and begin cleaning their decks and holds of by-catch and trash fish. They are the shrimp boats that spend the night dragging their nets for pink gold.
