FRYER FEATURE: BLESSING THE FLEET

 

With the holding pattern on where the expected tropical system, to be named Barry, will land, it’s good to have something settled.At the Port of Brownsville the annual blessing of the fleet has been performed, as it has been for many years. And they are ready to trawl.

Shrimp season was delayed this year, but officially opens Monday July 15th.The shrimpers in South Texas aren’t showing up in the likely path of the building weather system.Ports from our upper coast and across Louisiana are still undetermined.Big oil drillers are evacuating non-essential personnel from at least 15 deep water platforms as I speak.

Nothing new about these types of weather uncertainty and precautions.But good to know that when it blows over, as it will, shrimp trawlers and shrimp eaters will also be back in business again.
