Regina Pena sits inside her office at Philly's Seafood, which overlooks the Port of Palacios. Established in 2000, Philly's Seafood is Pena's family business, and she is responsible for selling shrimp caught in the Gulf of Mexico by the company's fleet as well as buying Gulf shrimp from other shrimpers in the port. "The product basically sells itself,'' Pena said, remarking about the quality of shrimp caught off of Texas shores.
