Making Waves Gets Him a License to Reel

Record #:
Will Morgan, executive director of the North Carolina chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association, worked with the North Carolina General Assembly to help pass legislation creating a saltwater fishing license. The issue, which had been debated for over a decade, passed in 2004. North Carolina was the only state between Texas and Delaware that did not have this license. The license is a user fee and costs $15 annually or $1 for a seven-day permit. Fees will be used for marine projects and scholarships for students pursuing marine science degrees.
