Mobile County

MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A Mobile institution will close after tomorrow. Tuesday will be the last day for the waterfront Southern Fish & Oyster in downtown Mobile.

Ralph Atkins Jr. has run the business for almost 53 years. His family opened the business in 1934.

Adkins property has been condemned for the new I-10 bridge project. He also says local seafood business is in decline due to dredging and ecological issues.
