From beautiful scenic byways and coastal estuaries, to seafood and shrimp boats, to festivals and fishing village charm, Bayou La Batre is the real deal. Our history and townspeople trace their heritage to the 1700s when settlers petitioned the King of Spain for a piece of land known today as Bayou La Batre—the place we call home.
We’re known for our seafood industry, but we also build ships for everyone from the U.S. Government to Disney’s Black Pearl vessel seen in Pirates of the Caribbean. Our award-winning shipbuilders take pride in their work and are recognized for quality delivery and maintenance worldwide.
We also welcome new industry, such as our green byproduct processing facility – the Gulf Coast Agricultural and Seafood Co-op –
