Dr. Tom Linton on the Shellfish Crisis

Record #:
Shellfish—their lives, the industry’s livelihood—looked bleak when Red Tide rolled in. The future became brighter with its causes’ discovery: inadequate treatment of human and animal wastes. It also brightened with the solutions: improvement of septic tank surveillance and testing procedures. A chart reiterated the need for improvement, with counties ranging from Dare to New Hanover, waterways from Hyde County’s Kitty Creek to Harkers Island’s Back Sound.
