Currituck is a county divided. On the one side are planned communities of expensive beach houses who cater to tourists and weekend and seasonal residents. On the other side are stretches of uninhabited beach and marsh owned by the state and federal governments, and small villages of long-term residents. Developers are attempting to bridge the gaps that deny access to many parts of the area but others don't want the change from isolation.
Although in the early 1980s fish were plentiful in Currituck Sound, now, with pressures from commercial and recreational fishing as well as pollution, fishing has been stunted in the Sound.
