Jumping Run: Building Hope for Closed Shellfish Beds

Record #:
High bacterial levels have closed permanently over 56,000 acres of shellfish beds along the coast. In Carteret County's Jumping Run Creek high levels closed beds except for a few days each year. The Jumping Run Creek Shellfish Restoration Project, started in 1997, seeks to develop water-quality improvement strategies that might reopen polluted beds along the coast.
