Meet a Gulf of Mexico charterboat captain

In observance of the one-year mark of the Deepwater Horizon BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, this month's "Voices from the Waterfront" by NOAA features an interview with Bryan Watts Jr., a charter fishing captain from Orange Beach, Ala., whose businesses were directly affected by the nation's worst oil spill.

Watts knows a thing or two about charter fishing. He owns and operates a 43-foot charter fishing boat called Undertaker, so named by friends and family after his father's previous occupation as funeral director. Watts also co-owns a charter fishing and dolphin cruise booking agency, 3F Charters.
