Abstract:
Channel catfish may live on the bottom, but they rank at the top when it comes to North Carolina dining. They have an unusual appearance and can be difficult for fishermen to unhook. The catch is worth it for the tender fish meat that can be cooked in a variety of recipes such as beer batter catfish, tater-fried fillets, and catfish au gratin.

Abstract:
There are several reasons why hunters and fishermen need game lands licenses, whereas other recreationists do not. According to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, funds collected from game lands licenses are used only for projects which primarily benefit sportsmen. Also, the Commission has no statutory authority to regulate outdoor sports not related to wildlife with the exception of boating.
