National Fisherman


For generations, the seafood business has been a part of cultural landscape of the eastern portion of the Old North State, and for the 27th year, the efforts of the men and women that bring fish and shellfish from the sea to the table will be recognized at the North Carolina Seafood Festival.
 
“We want to bring awareness about the commercial fishing industry,” said Cheryl Pigott, member of the Festival’s board. “We also want to recognize commercial fishermen in the area.”
 
As per festival tradition, there will be a blessing of the fleet and a ceremonial wreath tossing into the sea to recognize and honor fishermen, living and dead. According to the CDC, 545 commercial fishermen died while fishing in the United States.
 
“It’s a really neat reminder of why we do this festival,” said Pigott.
