Shrimpers: Photo 2

Photo detail

Edward Garcia sits and operates the motorized conveyer belt moving sacks of shrimp caught in the Gulf of Mexico as crew members work to unload the cargo from a boat in the Port of Palacios. Garcia has more than 60 years in the shrimping industry, and some of his children now operate Philly's Seafood, which consists of a fleet of more than 40 shrimping boats.
