Abstract:
Jones talks with marine mammal researchers about strandings and fisheries interactions. Bottlenose dolphins are the marine mammals seen the most in North Carolina coastal, sound, and river waters. Strandings of marine mammals average between 125 to 175, many of which are dolphins. At this point in 2013, there have been 201 strandings, with 165 being bottlenose dolphins. The article also contains information on dolphin photo identification and what can be done to keep pilot whales from becoming entangled in fishing lines and nets.

Abstract:
Ocean-dwelling American shad have for centuries returned to historic spawning grounds on middle Cape Fear River. However, for the last one hundred years, dams built by the US Army Corps of Engineers on the river from Wilmington to Fayetteville have blocked them. The Cape River Partnership, a coalition of twenty-three state and federal agencies, municipalities, and conservation groups has seen this year the realization this year of some their advocacies. Dam No. 1 now has its own rock arch rapids fishway past the dam, and at Dam No. 2 there is a newly placed spawning habitat of underwater gravel beds. The Partnership hopes that over the next few years Dams 1 and 2 will have their own fishways.
