Capt. Ernie Foster of Hatteras, North Carolina, grew up on boats fishing in the Albatross fleet, his family’s charter business. His father, Capt. Ernal Foster, launched charter fishing in the region in 1937, and Foster continues the family tradition today, running Albatross III and managing the entire charter fleet. Active in fisheries-management decisions, he sees his region as a true fishing community and knows how outcomes impact those who are tied to the different fisheries.
