Cultch planting meetings scheduled
Friday, March 04, 2016 @ 11:06:00 EST

 MOREHEAD CITY — The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries will hold seven public meetings in March to receive suggestions and comments on cultch planting. 


Cultch planting involves strategically placing shells and rock to enhance shellfish habitat in potentially productive shellfish areas. Oysters, clams and other aquatic life are attracted to the cultch and begin to immediately colonize on the material. In an effort to improve the cultch planting program, the division’s Shellfish Rehabilitation staff holds annual meetings to provide interested parties the opportunity to give input on planting sites, methods, materials and quantities.

 The meetings will be held on the following dates and locations:


March 1 at 6 p.m.                           
North Topsail Beach Town Hall
2008 Loggerhead Court, North Topsail Beach
