Seafood Festival on Saturday, October 18, 2014
 
Michael Peele shows a festival-goer how to mend a fishing net at the 2013
Outer Banks Seafood Festival. Photo courtesy of Outer Banks Catch.....
Outer Banks, N.C. -- Fishermen are the reason we have fresh, local seafood to enjoy year round on the Outer Banks. The Outer Banks Seafood Festival was created in part to honor and celebrate the hardworking people – the gillnetters, the longliners, the crabbers, the shrimpers, the oystermen, watermen, one and all – who help put the bounty of the sea on our plates.

What follows is an article on one Outer Banks waterman, Michael Peele of Hatteras village. It is the first in a series of articles about the people of the seafood world, from the fishermen who bring seafood from the sea to the chefs who put it on our plates.

Five generations of fishing; As a fisherman and fish-house owner, Michael Peele of Hatteras village follows in his family’s footsteps by Susan West.
