Former Shrimp Trawler To Become Oyster Boat

A boat once used for catching shrimp in Louisiana is now being deployed for oystering on the Rappahannock River. An article in National Fisherman magazine documents the boat’s purchase by Mack Robbins of White Stone who is going to use the Cajun skiff this year to harvest Virginia oysters. The vessel is being outfitted for its new job at a Saluda boatyard. It will join other Gulf of Mexico built boats working in Virginia’s oyster fishery.
