Will Herring Run Again?

Record #:
From the 1800s until recently, commercial fisheries in eastern North Carolina provided herring to people throughout the country and abroad. In an attempt to replenish the herring population, on March 2, 2006, the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission voted to ban the harvest of herring in North Carolina waters for the next ten to fifteen years. This article covers the history and biology of the blueback herring, also known as the river herring.
