Abstract:
Drought, high, salinities, extended higher water temperatures, and low-turbidity due to a lack of ocean storms created conditions in 2007 that attracted a nuisance invasive called animal grass to the coastline from Carteret to Dare Counties. Angione describes this invasive that caused fishermen problems by closing fishing nets.

Abstract:
Shrimp is one of the most popular seafood products in the country, but what most Americans do not realize is that 90 percent of the shrimp they are eating is imported. Over half of the imports are raised in ponds in Asia and South American and not caught in the wild. This has put the American shrimp industry at a disadvantage in trying to compete with the cheaper imports. Angione explores 'Wild American Shrimp,' a new marking effort of Wild American Shrimp, Inc. (WASI), the marketing arm of the Southern Shrimp Alliance (SSA), which seeks to promote the quality of American shrimp.

Abstract:
In 1987, Lee Brothers of Aurora became the first person in the country to pond-raise hybrid sea bass commercially. The fish, a cross between a striped bass and a white bass, generates around $7 million annually in the state. Hybrids are popular in sushi and sashimi markets in the Northeast. North Carolina now has nineteen hybrid producers, the most in the United States. Beaufort County has five of the nineteen fish farms. As coastal development pushes into areas where the fish are raised, farmers face public pressure about releasing effluent from their ponds into streams and rivers.

Abstract:
Stormwater runoff is a major pollution problem for shellfish farms. Home construction in coastal areas is growing. More people mean more roads, driveways, and parking lots. Water running over these impervious surfaces picks up contaminants such as oil, sand, chemicals, and fertilizers and deposits them in nearby rivers and streams. The more contaminants the harder it is for shellfish to grow. Reconciling the demand for development and the need for healthy shellfish is a challenge facing coastal planners.

Abstract:
Beach vitex was introduced into the southeastern United States from Korea in the 1980s. Scientists believed the plant could help stabilize sand dunes. Beach vitex now grows as far north as Ocracoke Island and as far south as Florida and Alabama. Heavy concentrations are also found on Bogue Banks, Bald Head Island, and Oak Island. Experts in North Carolina are seeking to have the plant listed as a Federal Noxious Weed. North and South Carolina's two-state task force has worked to stop the plant's spread.

Abstract:
Shackleford Banks, part of the Cape Lookout National Seashore, is a 3,000-acre uninhabited island near Atlantic Beach. A herd of 112 wild horses lives there, one of only a few wild herds remaining in the country. The herd's reproductive rate is carefully controlled to keep the horses from putting a strain on the island's food and water resources. To understand how the horses thrive and survive in the island's harsh environment, the National Park Service has undertaken a study of the horses' eating habits. The study will look at seasonal eating habits and whether different habitats provide different nutritional contents. No findings have been reported as yet, and the study will take another year to complete.

Abstract:
In 2005, around twelve million people visited North Carolina's coastal region. Many coastal visitors come by car and have difficulty finding places to park. State and federal parks usually have large parking facilities, but some coastal communities struggle to accommodate visitors. Public access and parking issues among North Carolina's coastal communities are examined.
