CFRG Takes Position on Fisheries Issues
The following posts have been submitted by the CFRG to the appropriate people involved in the issues. The first deals with Spotted Sea Trout and attempts to change horses in the middle of the stream without new information on the stock status reports.
The second deals with shrimp. The DMF/MFC have opted to search for new By Catch Reduction Devices (BRD) for two years as their solution to the 24 million pounds of fish being killed annually in North Carolina inshore waters by shrimp trawlers harvesting a mere 5 million pounds of shrimp (average) per year.
