Abstract:
North Carolina fishermen have made themselves a reputation. To support a fisherman and his family year round he must be mobile, and many North Carolina fishermen are proving their worth as they cross state lines into places like Florida or Massachusetts to challenge other fishermen for their catch. Ongoing projects through NC Sea Grant have sent three East Carolina University anthropologists to study just how unique North Carolina fishermen really are.

Abstract:
It was like D-Day in coastal North Carolina. The state's ocean waters were tainted with tiny organisms of a subtropical species of red tide dinoflagellate that turns the water red. It leaves beachcombers coughing, fish suffocating, and shellfishermen out of work. The organisms have neurotoxins that affect the nervous systems of other organisms. Although it is safe to eat the fish, crabs, and shrimp that lie in red tides because it does not taint their flesh, oysters, clams, and scallops are another story.
