‘You are looking at guys who didn’t have a boat, didn’t have any equipment, didn’t have a home.’

Editor’s Note: Back in 2014, Perri Cooper and Benny Miller, owner of Louisiana Seafood Exchange, sat down and spoke about his experience with Hurricane Katrina. We are putting it in for our “Tastebud Tuesday,” as Mr. Miller describes what it was like to re-open immediately after Katrina and what it has been like since then. He tells Cooper about the struggles that most fishermen endured because of the storm and how the city of New Orleans has changed since Katrina. The interview took place on April 17, 2014 at the New Orleans office of Louisiana Seafood Exchange.
