Founded in 1786 by Joseph Bouzage (Bosarge), Bayou La Batre was incorporated in 1955. The local seafood industry in this seafaring town serves as a centerpiece for the Discovery Channel's series, Big Shrimping. In addition, the city was featured in the 1994 film, Forrest Gump, and in the book on which it is based. Also, in 2005 Disney Studios launched the pirate ship, Black Pearl, which was built here for the film.
