A Stitch in Time - Netmaking Is Becoming a Lost Art

Record #:
Netmaking is as old as fishing. It is a specialized craft that is slowly fading away, with only six full-time net shops left in the state, and fewer still in Georgia and South Carolina. One reason for the decline is the increase in federal and state regulations governing commercial fishermen. North Carolina has requirements on the use of particular nets, including fixed, gill, trawl, and channel.
