The Fate of a Fishery - Shad and River Herring at the Turn of the 21st Century

Record #:
Shad and herring fisheries on coastal rivers have fed generations of eastern Carolinians. However, technological innovations, pollution, and overfishing have decreased the size of the annual harvest. Shannon describes the fisheries at Lock and Dam No. 1, Cape Fear River; Contentnea Creek, in Grifton; and the Roanoke River at Jamesville; and their prospects in the twenty-first century.
