Acy Cooper from "Ragin' Cajuns" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series about shrimpers.

Acy Cooper ("Ragin' Cajuns") is the family patriarch who comes from a long line of Louisiana coast shrimpers. He fishes for shrimp, like his father and his sons. He is a fourth-generation shrimper who's among the most respected and hardest-working in Venice. After passing down his old trawler to his 28-year-old son, Trae Cooper, the so-called Godfather of Venice refurbished his own Marla Kay vessel.

As vice president of the Louisiana Shrimp Association, Acy is committed to keeping his home state's shrimping industry thriving. He has spent years advocating for the needs of his fellow shrimpers: fighting against the dumping of foreign shrimp in the domestic market, for instance, or fighting for a certification and branding program for Louisiana commercial fishermen.

At the end of the day, Acy's most passionate about preserving a way of life for his children, so that they too can continue to shrimp Louisiana waters into the future.
