Zoning in on the Pier Zones

Record #:
Ocean fishing piers have been a part of the North Carolina seascape for over ninety years, since the construction of the state’s first ocean pier at Kure Beach in 1923. In the 1970s through the late 1980s, as many as thirty-five functioning fishing piers graced over three-hundred miles of North Carolina’s ocean coastline. Because different species tend to gravitate to different areas of the surf, there are five fishing zones along the pier which require different techniques and gear.
