Historic Georgetown is our state’s third oldest city. Its location along the beautiful Sampit, Waccamaw, and Pee Dee rivers makes it a popular spot for South Carolina shrimpers.

Shrimping is an important, and unfortunately endangered, industry in South Carolina. Cheap foreign shrimp have flooded our stores and restaurants, driving prices so low that local shrimpers must struggle to compete. These imported shrimp may be inexpensive, but they at times come with a high cost to our health, environment, economy, and community.

South Carolina shrimp are naturally fresh and flavorful, and they are caught in our own coastal waters. When you eat local shrimp, you help prevent intense pollution and you provide much needed support to our state’s shrimpers.

I am sure I lived in Georgetown County when this was taken, I lived there 18 years and worked with doctors in Georgetown. I miss it so badly. Enough of that, I just wanted you to know how beautiful your print is. I loved it when it snowed there also; a very good friend drove a shrimp boat there. Would love to see more of your work. Just great.
