A deviled crab sits on a plate with fried fish, fried shrimp, and fried oysters at the 65th annual Blessing of the Fleet in Bayou La Batre, Alabama, May 4, 2014. The town, which calls itself the "Seafood Capital of Alabama," relies heavily on the seafood industry. The Fleet Blessing is a Catholic tradition in which the archbishop of the local Catholic diocese blesses the boats and their crews, praying for a bountiful harvest and safe travels. The seafood was provided by local fishermen, oystermen, and shrimpers. Seafood gumbo was also available. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
