Shrimping is an important industry in the state. Recently high coats of fuel and low market prices have driven many shrimpers out of business. Kenny Sessions, a native of Topsail Island, is a contractor by day. At night he fishes for shrimp with a homemade trap he has built. Sessions has been so successful that the North Carolina Fishery Resource Grant (FRG) is studying his invention to see if it has application for commercial and recreational shrimpers.
