Public Comments Sought on Reorganization of Fisheries Agencies

 

MOREHEAD CITY – The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries is reminding the public of two coastal meetings next week where they can speak on how the state can provide more efficient, productive and enjoyable uses of fisheries resources.

Representatives from the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will take comments on Section 2 of Senate Bill 821, which was signed into law this summer.

This section of the law directs these agencies to study the current organization of the state’s fisheries management agencies and whether these agencies should be reorganized to provide for more efficient, productive and enjoyable uses of the state’s fisheries resources.

Currently, the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries manages coastal fish species while the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission manages inland fish species.

The meetings are set for:

6 p.m. Sept. 5

                Craven County Cooperative Extension Office

                300 Industrial Drive, New Bern

 
 6 p.m. Sept 6

                Dare County Administration Building

                Commissioners Meeting Room

                954 Marshall C. Collins Drive, Manteo

These meetings will focus solely on the topic of reorganization of the state’s fisheries agencies.

Also, the public may comment in writing online at http://www.ncsenatebill821.org/default.htm, or by mailing comments to S821 Comments, 1701 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, N.C. 27699-1701. The deadline for the receipt of written comments is Sept. 7.

All comments offered on this issue will be presented for joint consideration by all three agencies
