Artist's Description

A little about a Jubilee:
Jubilee is the name used locally for a natural phenomenon that occurs sporadically on the shores of Mobile Bay, a large body of water on Alabama’s Gulf Coast. During a jubilee many species of crab and shrimp, as well as flounder, eels, and other fish will leave deeper waters and swarm—in large numbers and very high density—in a specific, shallower coastal area of the bay. A jubilee is a celebrated event in Mobile Bay, and it attracts large crowds, many drawn by the promise of abundant and easy-to-catch seafood. This is apparently the only place in the world it occurs and when we have a Jubilee a lot of people take buckets to the beach and just pick up all they can. It usually happens late at night or early morning and people that live next to the water check all night to see when it happens then start calling friends, word gets out pretty fast.
WITH THE OIL COMING IN NOW DAILY, I DON’T KNOW IF WE WILL HAVE A JUBILEE THIS YEAR OR IF ALL THESE FISH WILL BEGONE SOON BECAUSE OF LACK OF OXYGEN.
