Black Sea Bass is a species of fish popular in North Carolina. Student Ian Kroll studied the inner ear bones of these fish to determine the migratory patterns of juvenile Black Sea Bass. His research shows that most fish use inshore habitats but some still use offshore habitats for nurseries.
Tom Burgess and Paul Rudershausen are conducting research to match mesh size on catch boxes to black sea bass length. They are seeking to find a mesh size that will meet the new black sea bass fishery standard of trapping fish eleven inches or longer and insuring the release of the remainder. Lee reports on their work.
