Abstract:
Stretching across the Atlantic Coastal Plain from Florida to New Jersey are around 500,000 elliptical depressions known as Carolina bays. Over half of them are found in eastern Carolina. The bays are a land feature that exist nowhere else in the world. No one knows how they were formed. Some have water; others are dry. Lake Waccamaw is the largest of the bays, being about five miles long.

Abstract:
Economic Development has largely bypassed much of the rural coastal plain of southeastern North Carolina. Few industries requiring skilled workers and paying high wages have been attracted to the region. To increase development in this region, it is imperative that new economic activities be put in place. These activities must be compatible with the natural and cultural resources of the region. One such activity that many believe has significant potential to enhance economic development is aquaculture, especially catfish farming.

Abstract:
Agriculture is the predominant economic activity in south-central North Carolina. Though abundant arable land is available for increased production, expansion and refinement is often hindered by frequent and sometimes severe droughts, associated with high temperatures and sandy soil. Ross argues for increased rates and levels of irrigation that would result in a more consistent and higher quality product.
