Abstract:
The authors talk about the fishermen and oystermen of Ocracoke and the dilemma they had in 2006 when the last fish house went up for sale. The watermen organized and formed OWWA (Ocracoke Working Watermen’s Association) and then by forming a nonprofit umbrella organization, ‘Ocracoke Foundation,’ they were able to pursue grants and help the community. They bought the last fish house and renovated it into the Ocracoke Seafood Company.
