Natural water gathering in two newly discovered Carolina bays, designated as Oak Bay and Pine Bay was studied. These bays and the Sewee shell ring, a planned water gathering system built in the Archaic Period, provided a supply of freshwater. This study describes how hunter-gatherers utilized natural landscape features at these coastal archaeological sites.
Total length and weight data of striped bass were sampled in the Roanoke River near Weldon, North Carolina. Equations were developed to allow anglers to estimate the weight of striped bass caught during the spring based on the length of the fish caught.
Long term long-line shark catch variations at two Onslow Bay, North Carolina sites were examined for differences in catches by sites and tidal stages. Catches were highly different between sites, but catches by tidal stage were not different.
