Cultch Planting Meetings Scheduled for Southern Coastal Areas

MOREHEAD CITY – The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries will hold three public meetings in December to receive suggestions and comments on cultch planting in the southern coastal areas of the state.

Cultch planting is where shells and rock are placed into the waters to enhance shellfish habitat in potentially productive shellfish areas. Oysters, clams and other aquatic life are attracted to the cultch and will begin to immediately colonize the material.

The division’s Shellfish Rehabilitation Section staff constantly looks for ways to improve the program, so annual meetings are held to provide fishermen and interested parties the opportunity to give advice regarding planting sites, methods, materials and quantities.

The meetings are set for:

·         6 p.m. Dec. 17

Varnamtown Town Hall

100 Varnamtown Road Southwest

Varnamtown

·         6 p.m., Dec. 18

N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources

127 Cardinal Drive Extension

·         6 p.m., Dec. 19

North Topsail Beach Town Hall

Meetings will be scheduled for other coastal areas of the state and announced at a later date.
