gullah geecheE alive and thriving within the cape fear Written By: Casey McAnarney

North Carolina may not contribute the most land to The Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor, an expanse of land spanning four states on the East Coast, but this culture is not lost here. Long has it been said that the corridor exists from Jacksonville, NC to Jacksonville, FL, according to the Gullah Geechee nation’s Queen Quet. However, the work of historians and the National Parks Services proves that the true tip of the corridor is further into the Cape Fear region in Wilmington, where unique aspects of the culture continue to thrive and set North Carolina Gullah Geechee culture apart.

Back in slavery times, North Carolina had one port that operated at full capacity: Wilmington. The barrier islands off the coast made operating ports in other cities difficult at times, so Wilmington became the only port where enslaved Africans and Gullah were brought into North Carolina. Gullah’s were targeted specifically for their West African heritage and practices when it came to planting and growing rice, according to Sean Palmer, Director of UNC Wilmington’s Upperman African American Cultural Center and NC Commissioner to the corridor. Plantation owners would live in Wilmington, with their plantations and slaves existing outside of town in areas like Ogden, Eagle’s Island and Wrightsville Beach. The slaves would continue to develop and practice their West African traditions, which they were targeted for from the beginning. They were brought here for the specific reason to man rice. However, there was an interruption in Gullah culture in Wilmington in 1898, when racial tensions in the city reached a peak, marking the start of an era of more severe segregation and disenfranchisement of African-Americans. During this time, individuals with Gullah Geechee ties began moving out of Wilmington, according to Palmer. They began moving to surrounding counties like Durham and further afield to Philadelphia and New Jersey. “Most black folk in Wilmington today are probably second wave Wilmingtonians,” Palmer said, as most of the originals fled. 10

ca p e f ear l i v i n g / September 2018

North Carolina Gullah folk were even connected to the cotton pickers of Mississippi. Dr. Cassie Sade Turnipseed, a professor of History at Mississippi State Valley University, currently works to build a historical site that pays tribute to the unrecognized hard work of American cotton pickers since Mississippi is known as the “cotton kingdom.” Dr. Turnipseed began her research in Mississippi but eventually found herself in Wilmington, following the corridor and learning about Gullah connections to cotton picking. “My project involved figuring out what is the narrative around cotton,” Dr. Turnipseed said, which led her to England. She traveled to Manchester last summer, where they consider themselves the cotton capital since they were the first textile industrialized city. That cotton was then shipped to the Carolinas and, eventually, the Mississippi Delta. Digging further, Dr. Turnipseed discovered that the Georgia seed cotton came directly from Africa and through the Carolinas. The Gullah tradition and culture is what sustained the practice of dealing with cotton, creating a unique commodity. Mississippi, Dr. Turnipseed said, “is the cotton kingdom extended from the Carolinas.” The same was true for rice, according to Dr. Turnipseed, slave owners and traders were able to isolate and identify those folks that had a particular skill set, enabling the crops to grow well in the Carolinas. Skills were isolated and targeted, and the Africans who had such skills were held back to do this work for that specific purpose. Skill sets however, were only one of the trademarks of Gullah culture. Palmer also mentioned a tradition of festivals related to Caribbean culture. Prior to 1898, Wilmington had its own Junkanoo festival, a Trinidadian and Bahamian street parade of Akan origins that occurs every Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. After the Insur-

rection of 1898, when the Gullah fled Wilmington and its violence, some fled to New Bern where they continued these Junkanoo festivals - now known as the John Canoe festival. Another example of Gullah culture persisting in the Cape Fear region are, “The sweetgrass baskets that are synonymous with Charleston and Mount Pleasant resemble the same baskets made out of pine straw in North Carolina coastal community life,” said Palmer. Poplar Grove Plantation even exhibits these woven baskets on site. “Where you grow rice in South Carolina,” Palmer said, “blueberries are big around here. Jonathan Green’s artwork is vivid and acknowledges Gullah culture and heritage, and we get Ivy Hayes and his work around blueberries, peanuts and tobacco.” Rice is still here, Palmer said, which contributes proof to the idea that Gullah culture lived here. “Where we see the greatest continuity is that we get these African Methodist Episcopal churches up and down the eastern seaboard. Even the primacy of rice and how seafood is cooked, none of that is lost.”

Palmer recalled visiting St. Helena, where he saw tabby concrete being used as house foundations. Tabby is cement made out of sea shells and is based on West African coastal community building practices. At Poplar Grove, about three miles away from the beach, Palmer noticed that the floor was made of shell. “They did this because shell would have been more protective against water,” said Palmer, “so they used shell as a base because that is common in their West African heritage.” Looking into Gullah culture will allow African Americans the chance to reconcile their own identities and find their roots. Previous corridor commissioner Mayor Eulis Willis published an entire book about the town of Navassa’s history and connection to the Gullah Geechee, called “Navassa: The Town and Its People.” This book was cited as being “the perfect example of the Gullah Geechee diaspora,” which led to Mayor Willis’ appointment on the corridor. Dr. Turnipseed said that it was due to Gullah folk not wanting to be considered “backward,” that they would shed their culture. Now, it is time for those with connections to the culture to reclaim it and for the world to learn about it. ¶

Salon des BeauxWritten By: Kelly Johnson

In a Parisian cafe, around the1860s, a group of artists gathered to discuss little of their tea and pastries and more of their passion for art and the ideas behind it. The result? A painting modernization known as Impressionism, moving out from the studio and onto the streets of Paris and into the French countryside — painting en plein air. These painters loosened brush strokes and lightened pallets, creating a mere impression — a fleeting moment — breathing freedom into their works. With limited success and few artworks accepted in the salon exhibitions of Paris, the artists turned to alternative exhibition spaces. Holding an exhibition at 35 Boulevard des Capucines, on the top floor of the studio of photographer Felix Nadar, in 1874.


Critics were merciless. Trained to expect the polished illusions of the Salon painters, they were shocked by the raw, unblended, illdefined paint used by Degas, Renoir, Monet and company. It wasn’t until 1877 that they called themselves the Impressionists, taken from a newspaper article titled, "Exhibition of the Impressionists," and the term stuck. This month we are taken away from the Parisian cafe, away from the studio of Felix Nadar, and into the studio of Wilmington’s own, Dan Beck. Bringing some of the finest painters from across the nation together for the first time to display their talents and impressions at the Salon des Beaux-Artes, on October 7, 2018. ¶

Dan Beck Dan Beck has won many prestigious awards including two gold medals from the Oil Painters of America, one national (2011) and one eastern regional (2017) and a silver medal in the western regional. He has also won awards of excellence from the American Impressionist Society, Ramar Art Competition, and Bold Brush Art Competition. Art has always been his first love since childhood, but wanderlust was his motivation following high school. He worked in everything from construction on a beach in Florida, to four years in the infantry. After hearing about an art school in Denver his life found its focal point and he was determined to take part in the rich tradition of art. “Painting is a balancing act between opposite ideas - direct observation and instinct, control and spontaneity, even between the literal and the symbolic.”

Louis Escobedo Receiving a BFA in Advertising Art from Sam Houston State University, Escobedo began his painting career at age 6 when he won the best of show in his elementary school in Sweetwater, Texas. Starting as a freelance illustrator, he received a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York, along with other honors. Shifting from illustration to fine art in 1985, Louis and his wife, Yolanda, moved to Colorado. Since then they recently relocated to Santa Fe, NM. Exhibiting in many galleries across the U.S., Louis was awarded his first Gold Medal from the National Oil Painters of America - one of only two artists to have received the prestigious award twice from the 27-year-old organization. “I intermingle abstract shapes and color to energize my subjects, which include landscapes, still life’s and figures.” winter 16x20

Kevin Beilfuss Graduating from Illinois State University and the American Academy of Art, Kevin became a freelance illustrator. Working with illustration, his work consisted mostly of paintings for book covers and magazines for Penguin Publishing, Harlequin, and Readers Digest to name a few. "I had always dreamed of becoming an Illustrator, but the demands of painting someone else's ideas finally took its toll. I decided that life is too short and that I had to paint from my heart. What's important to me, is that I try to capture a little of what God has already created in each of my paintings. One can obviously see the beauty of God's creation in nature, but for me it is even more profound when I see and experience that beauty in people." In 2010, Kevin won the gold medal in the Oil Painters of America Eastern Regional. Enchanted Forest_24x20 14

Kim English was born in Omaha, Nebraska and was raised in a rural community near Colorado Springs. Graduating from the Rocky Mountain School of Art, he joined the faculty and later began teaching at the Art Students League of Denver and the Scottsdale Artists School. Winning numerous awards through his career such as Best of Show in New York's Salmagundi Club and the Allied Artists show, Kim recently was awarded a Master of Excellence award in the 2018 American Impressionist Show. A love for light and shadow, depth and texture, he creates spontaneity by completing each painting in one sitting. He says of using this method, “Immediacy is important. Not only because it is often the nature of people, but for me it is the most instinctive way to paint.”

Nura Mascarenas Earning an art degree from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, Nura Mascarenas spent many years as a sculptor showing in major galleries in the southwest. Nura returned to her roots in painting, eventually evolving from representational to abstraction. Nura says, “The fragrance of color is the sustenance to my soul, painting is an intuitive process, surrendering to the graceful flow, weaving a tapestry of many threads of color from my inner world.” Having worked with many mediums, painting in oils is her preference. Inspired by her surroundings, Mascarenas finds nature to be the greatest of her influencers— mountain ranges, water ripples, sandy beaches, and everything in between, she finds movement, rhythm and patterns.

Carolina’s Original Culinary Culture

Written By: Colleen Thompson

Mention the word Gullah or Geechee in culinary circles, even in the Southern U.S. and you’re likely to get blank stares. An often overlooked and rarely documented culture, the Gullah Geechee culinary heritage has permeated Southern food culture for generations, even if you were completely unaware of it. Many beloved specialties can be traced back to the Gullah ancestral heritage from Africa’s rice coast. Over generations, the cooking and the recipes were largely left behind in family kitchens and small neighborhood joints sustained by loyal local diners. Often overshadowed by more well known southern offerings and masked behind the tagline of “soul food,” Gullah cuisine is still very much alive and claiming its rightful place amongst the foodways of the US. Peanuts, okra, rice, yams, peas, hot peppers, sesame seeds, sorghum and watermelon were all brought to the US by enslaved ancestors of the Gullah Geechee. But it is the rice-based dishes, more than any others, that set the Gullah apart. Rice combined with bountiful amounts of fish, oysters and crabs they caught in the oceans surrounding the isolated islands where they have lived for generations. Served alongside collard greens, peas, beans and okra, these foods were the building blocks of a cuisine created out of pure necessity, piecing together meals and essentially creating what we know today as the ‘farm-to-table’ movement. In the 1700s, West Africans from countries like Sierra Leone,

Ghana and Angola (many historians believe the name “Gullah” is derived from a mispronunciation of Angola) were hand-picked by Southern plantation owners for their knowledge of rice cultivation in hot, humid climates. The Gullah or Geechee people, as they came to be known, were enslaved together on the isolated sea and barrier islands that span what is now designated as the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor – a stretch of the U.S. coastline extending from Pender County, North Carolina to St. Johns County, Florida and for 30 miles inland. Forced together from different countries, cultural backgrounds and languages these slaves lived a rural and relatively isolated existence. The Gullah people soon developed their own unique, English-based Creole language along with a new way of life, but with a culture always closely linked to their African heritage. They raised pigs and incorporated oysters, turtles, and shrimp into their dishes, with rice forming the basis of many of the meals, all cooked in one pot at a slow boil throughout the day resulting in rich, complex flavors from simple ingredients. After emancipation, the customs and traditions of the Gullah people spread throughout the Carolina’s but they entrenched themselves into their secluded areas often away from the mainland, where they created their own hybridized culture consisting of mixed African traditions and American ingredients. Isolated geographically

and often culturally, the Gullah people were a thread in an entirely separate lineage of people disconnected from the rest of the country, even from other Southern black communities. Deeply rooted in the seasons many of the dishes we know as classic Southern favorites are actually derived from Gullah culture. The import of the red hulled African strain of rice through the slave trade set the foundation for some of the most notable Southern food traditions. Today, we can still see clear similarities between one-pot rice recipes like jambalaya and Jollof, a wildly popular traditional dish in many West African countries. Other dishes, like Hoppin’ John, bear resemblance to Ghana’s waakye, and Senegalese thiebou niebe. Okra soup is the gumbo of the Gullah people. A variation on the Nigerian Igbo language, okwuru became the English word for okra and was most often prepared in a stew and eaten with rice or millet and was later called “limpin’ Susan.” For okra soup, unlike the potage of other recipes that use a roux base, the Gullah use a tomato and onion base to which they add shrimp. Frogmore stew - not a euphemism for the ingredients - also known as Low Country Boil, Tidewater Boil or Beaufort Boil is a dish that involves bringing a large pot of water to a boil and adding corn, shrimp sausage and Old Bay seasoning. It is credited to Richard Gay of Gay Fish Company, located in the community of Frogmore on St. Helena Island, the heart of Gullah culture in the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina. The quintessential Southern rice-and-beans dish Hoppin' John, which is eaten on New Year's Day, for good luck and prosperity, can also be traced all the way back to the Gullah. Southern food icon and cultural anthropologist Vertamae SmartGrosvenor highlighted Gullah Geechee cuisine and culture, long

before Southern food was having a moment. Her 70s cookbook, “Vibration Cooking, or the Travel Notes of a Geechee Girl,” was part memoir and part recipe book and introduced readers to Gullah food culture. She famously wrote in her book, “When I cook, I never measure or weigh anything. I cook by vibration.” Sallie Ann Robinson’s first book, “Gullah Home Cooking the Daufuskie Way” (2003) used her mother’s recipes to describe her childhood on the Daufuskie Island, five miles north of the mouth of the Savannah River. She introduced readers to recipes like Smokin' Joe Butter Beans, Ol' 'Fuskie Fried Crab Rice and Sticky-Bush Blackberry Dumpling. In the last few years, Gullah cuisine has received renewed interest as celebrity chefs like Sean Brock, of famed Husk Restaurant in Charleston, and the late Anthony Bourdain, shined a spotlight on a cuisine that had essentially been ignored by media. Possibly the biggest advocate for Gullah cuisine right now is Charleston Chef BJ Dennis, who has become sort of champion for the culinary heritage. Dennis travels the country, cooking pop-up dinners for guests to try Gullah dining. He has dedicated much of his time to rediscovering the heritage rice grain, known as hill rice. Like David Shields of the Carolina Gold Foundation, which seeks to preserve and restore heirloom grains. He believes that the story of this rice is able to tie together many of the strands of the great African food diaspora. His hope is that in time the rice will make its way back into the Gullah Geechee community. As more voices like Chef Dennis start to resonate, the more exposure is given to this vibrant and fascinating piece of the puzzle that makes up our region’s vibrant food heritage. ¶

7 Things You May Not Know About Gullah Food Red Rice sautéed with onion and garlic is a staple for most of the Gullah people. Millet is often used as a substitute for rice, which gives the dish a slightly sweet and nutty taste. Perloo is a pot of slow-cooked and flavorful meat-and-rice stew similar to jambalaya. Soup bunch includes green and red cabbage, collard greens, rutabaga, turnips, onion, ginger, garlic and hot peppers. Benne seeds - were grown in all great Carolina kitchen gardens, in particular in the forbidden subsistence gardens of African slaves who brought benne to Carolina and introduced it to the region’s nascent rice culture and cuisine. Shrimp & grits can trace its roots to the sea islands. Plantation owners provided grits to the Gullah people as part of their food allowance. Grits became a fundamental ingredient in Gullah food as they added shrimp, crab and oysters.

The American woman has a complicated relationship with her jeans. The staggering number of options—from skinny to straight to boyfriend and beyond—is overwhelming in itself. Add to that the difficulty of finding brands that consistently deliver great fits and that practice sustainability in their manufacturing processes, and successful denim shopping can start to feel like an impossible feat. But that doesn’t have to be the case. At Oliver, we focus on fits that flatter, washes that wear perfectly over time, and statement-making details that take your look to the next level. Whether it’s a fullon jumpsuit that screams high fashion or a pair of classic skinnies with an edgy button-fly, the perfect denim has depth and versatility - it’s equal parts comfort and style. ca pefea rliving mag a z in e .com

Our 21st-century obsession with denim may seem like a new thing, but the love actually dates all the way back to the 1800s, when miners during the American Gold Rush needed more durable options. Over time, what was originally workwear for intense physical labor has become a staple in every fashion girl’s closet, and the legacy of denim is even older than jeans themselves. The term comes from an Americanization of "serge de Nimes," a fabric that originated in Nimes, France during the Middle Ages. Makes sense, right? Popular culture started to emphasize denim as a fashion statement in the Hollywood Golden Age, first in depressionera cowboy movies, then as a symbol of rebellion in midcentury coming-of-age films. Think: James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause. But it wasn’t long before the prevailing counterculture became mainstream fashion. By the 1980s, demand for “premium” options was in full force and luxury denim started to garner global appeal. Jeans that look amazing, go with everything, and last forever? Sign us up! In a fashion landscape that is constantly changing, wardrobe staples are a must and that’s where great denim comes into play: a classic straight gets a modern update with a single back shadow pocket.

Chris and Ron came to the Cape Fear after spending years working at a big outdoor resort in Pennsylvania. They’d both gotten promoted into desk jobs, away from the outdoors they loved. “We used to joke that it would be perfect if we could just pick up the treetop course and move it south,” Ron told me. In Pennsylvania, they had to close the course during the winter, a problem they’d be less likely to experience down south. Eventually, their joke turned into real planning—several years’ worth. Their first order of business was to decide where to build. Ron, a former combat medic in the Army, had spent some time in Fayetteville and knew he liked North Carolina. They searched for a place that would be accessible to Wilmington, Myrtle Beach, the Triangle region, and Fayetteville. But since opening in Riegelwood in April, they’ve been surprised by how many people consider it too far to go. “It’s only about 25 minutes from downtown Wilmington,” Chris told me. “You can’t even get to some places in Wilmington in 25 minutes.” To Chris and Ron, it was important to have plenty of acreage with mature tree growth to create the experience they envisioned. “You have to be this far out to get that,” Ron said. Up in the trees, I follow along behind a group of teenagers—two visiting from Germany—as they leap nimbly from challenge to challenge. They’re not shy about leaving each other behind, seeming to view the course as a competition. Luckily, the course is designed to allow guests to proceed at their own pace, without the need for a guide at every turn (though Chris is nearby the whole time). Cape Fearless uses a system called CLiC-iT Adventure, a pair of connected carabiners designed so that only one of the pair can be opened at a time. This prevents guests from accidentally removing both carabiners from the cables and ensures they are always secure throughout the course. It also changes the guide’s role from course policeman to instructor and motivator.

“How do you help people who are afraid of heights?” I ask Ron. “We’ve had a number of people who’d swear they were afraid of heights,” he says, “but once they settle in with being comfortable with the equipment, they discover that the height isn’t as big of a factor as they thought it would be.” Luckily, I no longer experience heights as a jolt in the stomach; after years of rock climbing, I’ve learned to trust my gear, but I remember the fear of leaning back, of getting too close to the edge, of believing that this thin rope is going to keep me from tumbling fifty feet down to the ground. As it turns out “this thin rope” is rated at 22 kiloNewtons—equal to nearly 5,000 pounds of impact. Five thousand. And Chris assures me that all aspects of the park and equipment are inspected on a regular basis. Sometimes, though, people do freeze up—whether from fear or from exhaustion. The four-level course increases in difficulty and typically takes three to four hours to complete. While guides want to see guests push their limits, they encourage them to end on a good note. That often means descending at the start of the third or fourth (red or black) course rather than pushing forward and getting stuck in the middle. But guides have the capacity to lower a guest at any point during the course, as Chris effortlessly demonstrates when one of the teenagers in our group gets too tired to continue. The guest is attached to a “descender” and slowly lowered to the ground, at which point they can follow the trail back to the front office.


ca p e f ear l i v i n g / September 2018

I ask Ron and Chris about their most interesting experiences at Cape Fearless, and they laugh and exchange a glance. “We’ve had plenty of guest experiences that wouldn’t be suitable for print,” Ron tells me. He says that guests often learn a lot about themselves—and each other—when they do this course. People who come as friends leave as more than friends and couples sometimes see the rough sides of each other. “Back in PA, we had a proposal on the course once,” Chris says. “He was waiting at the end of the zip line with a ring.” Cape Fearless has that Swiss Family Robinson appeal—the feeling of being lost in the treetops among the butterflies, birds, and dragonflies. All around you is the sound of grasshoppers and cicadas buzzing, and in front of you is a puzzle that engages both your mind and body. For a moment—or a few hours—it’s easy to forget you’re only 25 minutes from Wilmington. Because right now, you’re on an adventure. ¶

Walking the Moonlit Path virgo New Moon september 2018 Wr itt en By: D r . sha r a eisen

Happy Birthday Virgo, and a happy Virgo new moon to all! The summer was intense in more ways than one for most of us, and as it winds down and we move into the autumn, school and work routines normalize, and the shorter days remind us of the cooler weather to come. The planets have far fewer retrogrades than last month, many projects that have been on hold begin to move forward. Virgo is one of the best signs for accomplishing all sorts of projects— from organizing

the garage to starting a side business. While not all Virgos are the organized librarians as they are stereotyped to be, they are one of the signs that are happiest when being of service and may truly enjoy work as much, if not, more than play. They have highly capable minds, making some of the most loyal friends, and are typically balanced and sensible regarding diet, exercise, and routines. This makes the Virgo New Moon an auspicious time for creating new routines or at least making some changes in a positive direction, especially regarding health and exercise. It is an excellent time to find a new healer, be this an acupuncturist, chiropractor, or naturopath. If you simply want to use your time more wisely, by spending thirty minutes each day walking, learning a new language, or practicing guitar, the change will be more likely to stick if you begin around this new moon. Venus will be going into Scorpio this month, where she will stay until January 2019, with the exception of November, when she backs up into Libra. Venus typically takes well under a month to transit a sign, so this is quite an extended visit. Though her retrograde period won’t begin until next month, we may already begin to feel the effects as she begins to move into the “shadow” (the part of the zodiac over which the retrograde motion will occur). Astrologically speaking, Venus symbolizes our love nature, which will be in one of the most passionate and intense signs of the zodiac. We are not likely to be happy with relationships that feel overly mental or superficial. We will be seeking deeper connections

in these next few months. Astronomically speaking, we will cease to see Venus in the Western evening sky after the sunset, as it moves “backward” and so close to the sun that it will be invisible, so enjoy the beautiful evening star while you can.

ca p e f ear l i v i n g / September 2018


Richard Huse grew up on the water in Rowayton, Connecticut and spent his time exploring the sea and hanging out around fishermen on the sound. Kept him in a life jacket most of the time by his concerned parents, his interest in marine science grew despite the constraints. After spending summers at Topsail Island, he chose the University of North Carolina Wilmington to pursue his Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology, while surfing and kiteboarding between classes. After graduating in 2015, Huse wanted to stay in Wilmington but knew that it was hard to find marine science jobs in the region. Instead of entering the competitive job market, he created his own job. Inspired by his ultimate goal of bluefin tuna aquaculture, he decided to start small. “I started experimenting with copepod aquaculture by using repurposed beer brewing equipment and an old tank from a hydroponics system,” said Huse. While on a long flight the summer after college, he decided that he was going to go for it and start his own business. To recent graduates thinking about starting a business, he has this advice, “Do it right after college, or you won’t do it at all.”

Atlantic Biotechnology was created by Huse in 2015 - a recent graduate, scientist, businessman and now entrepreneur. “A professor I had at UNCW told me not to try to go to graduate school but to start a business instead,” said Huse. Which is exactly what he did. Atlantic Biotechnology is a copepod culturing facility in Wilmington that grows and sells their products primarily to individuals and aquarium stores. The two current products can be found in over 50 stores across the country and at the locally owned Fish Room on Eastwood Road. Huse was named Coastal Entrepreneur of the Year in the biotechnology category in 2016 by the Greater Wilmington Business Journal. This experience allowed him to work closely with people at the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Wilmington and to also make connections with the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, located in Durham. In 2017, he was invited to speak at Cucalorus Connect, the technology conference that was added to Wilmington's annual film festival. He was also named one of the Global Aquaculture Alliance's 30 Under 30 for 2018.

Many successful people started their endeavors in their garage, and so did Huse. Atlantic Biotechnology started in his garage, expanded to one of the guest bedrooms, then the entire back of the house and most of the kitchen during shipping days, before moving to a dedicated facility. “I am in the process of expanding the business by adding more tanks so more copepods can be grown and the products can reach more stores and people,” said Huse. His ambition to make sure this business succeeds and expands is driven by the dream he and his fiancée have of living on the water with a dock. He also wants to make a positive impact on our environment and oceans. Wilmington is the ideal location for his business because he can use saltwater from the ocean instead of having to make his own, which is very costly and has negative environmental impacts. “I use saltwater from Wrightsville Beach, and due to the nature of the organisms, discharge water is cleaner than what was taken in.” In his free time, he is always out on a boat in the Intra-

coastal Waterway or exploring the islands around Wrightsville, and is passionate about improving the water quality and ecosystems in his favorite place and his home. Plans for the future include expanding the business, moving to a bigger facility, adding additional products, and creating more job opportunities for marine scientists in Wilmington. His ultimate goal is to make a lasting impact on the Wilmington community and its environs, and one day he may just buy that house on the water. ¶
