Abstract:
Sneads Ferry is the top producer of black sea bass in the South Atlantic. Lee reports on a North Carolina Fishery Resource Grant project that seeks to study the efficiency and effectiveness of different configurations of black sea bass pots. The project has three main tasks: to determine if a certain pot type catches more legal sea bass; discover if a particular pot type catches more undersized sea bass; and compare the health of the released sub-legal sea bass from each pot type. The study is being conducted in Onslow Bay.

Abstract:
Graduate students are teaming with fishermen to help sustain the catch. According to Eileen Vandenburgh and Galen Johnson, fishermen understand more on some issues than scientists do because they interact with the marine environment every day. Local knowledge is helping them have a better understanding of clam and shrimp populations.

Abstract:
For decades, menhaden was North Carolina’s number one commercial fishery by volume. Concerns about overfishing led to changes in harvest allocations and a menhaden reduction fishery. Researchers are investigating the socioeconomic impact of the Atlantic menhaden fishery on East Coast states, and how policy changes might affect the industry.
