Bayou La Batre Alabama: Seafood Capital of Alabama

Bayou La Batre was featured in the 1994 film Forrest Gump and the book upon which it is based. In April 2005, Disney Studios launched a secretly built pirate ship, the Black Pearl, out of Bayou La Batre for filming sequels to Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Bayou La Batre’s seafood industry also serves as a centerpiece for the  History channel’s reality documentary series Big Shrimpin’.
