Byron Encalade, Voices From The Gulf

Byron Encalade, Voices From The Gulf.

The second in a series of interviews with South Louisiana Fishermen, Drew Landry took me to Byron Encalade, in East Pointe A-LA Hache, LA, a small fishing village in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.  He engages in harvesting seafood, oysters and shrimp; also in transporting seafood along the gulf coast states.  He is currently serving as Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana Constable 3rd Ward, American Legion Post 430 Judge Advocate, Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries Seed Ground Permit Appeals Board, President of Louisiana Oystermen Association, President of South Plaquemines United Fisheries Cooperative and most proudly a lifetime member of the Wolfhound Pack 27th Infantry Regiment Historical Society, Inc.

Byron has been an oysterman all of his life and tells it like it is for his friends and family 5 years after the BP oil disaster.

  1. A spill like this can affect so many people. There are so many stories behind the scenes that we do not hear about. This interview was great by helping us learn about this tragedy and the communities affected.
