Abstract:
For centuries, small-scale commercial fishermen in North Carolina have harvested their livelihood from the Atlantic Ocean. In the twenty-first century, this way of life is threatened by ever-tightening federal regulations, rising amounts of imported seafood, and expanding coastal development. For the past seven years, filmmaker Matt Barr has been documenting the lives of four Sneads Ferry fishing families who have followed this way of life for generations. Barr shares excerpts of the interviews he conducted with these families.

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:
The Blue Crab Research Project, funded by the North Carolina General Assembly and administered by the North Carolina Sea Grant Program, is testing the effectiveness of different sizes of cull rings for crab pots along seven of the state's estuaries. Cull rings, or escape rings, allow undersized crabs to escape from the crab pot. Fewer sub-legal crabs in the pots means crabbers spend less time sorting their catches. Results of the study will be available in the summer of 2007.
