Flounder is a popular food fish; however, a number of areas have been overfished, and some North Carolina waters have been closed. A flounder aquaculture has been profitable in Asia for a number of years. Korea is producing around twenty-one million tons a year. Researchers with the North Carolina Sea Grant program anticipate there will be commercial flounder production in the state in the next three to five years.

Abstract:
Catfish farming is booming in the lower Mississippi River Valley, but how successful would it be in North Carolina? While people in the deep South consider catfish a delicacy, many North Carolinians consider the catfish a trash fish. The primary obstacles to catfish farming in the state are the unavailability of processing facilities and the lack of a steady market.

Abstract:
Leutze continues his series on coastal aquaculture by discussing two different, but successful, programs. One is a large-scale project at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. The program began in 1998 under the direction of Dr. Wade Watanabe, a research professor at UNCW's Center for Marine Science. Watanabe coordinates the center's aquaculture programs. The other program is smaller and was started by Jeff Wolfe, an enterprising local fisherman.

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:
Although North Carolina has been harvesting and shipping its wild eels to markets in Europe and Japan since the early 1970s, some argue a sustainable eel industry in the state will need to look into the use of aquaculture as a means of raising eel.
