MOREHEAD CITY — The North Carolina Marine Fisheries Commission will meet Nov. 15-16 at the Hilton Garden Inn, 5353 N. Virginia Dare Trail, Kitty Hawk.

The meeting will begin at 2 p.m. Nov. 15 and 8:30 a.m. Nov. 16.

A public comment period will be held at 6 p.m. Nov. 15. Members of the public may speak to the commission on any fisheries-related topic. The chairman will allow each speaker to comment for up to three minutes. No other public comment period is slated for this meeting.

The deadline for submitting written comments, including email, to the commission through the Marine Fisheries Commission Office, is 8 a.m. Nov. 13. Those who wish to forego this process and give handouts to the commission during the public comment period should bring at least 12 copies of the handout.

The public may listen to the meeting on the Internet. Up to 200 participants may listen to audio and view presentations in real-time on a first-come, first-served basis. Directions for participating in the webcast, including information on system requirements and testing, can be found here. Following the meeting, an audio recording will be posted online.

The commission is slated to vote on recommendations for the 2018 recreational cobia season. The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission recently approved an Interstate Fishery Management Plan for Atlantic Migratory Group Cobia that complements federal regulations for state waters from Georgia to New York. It sets a recreational bag limit of one fish per person and a minimum size limit of 36 inches fork length. It also sets state-specific recreational harvest targets that allow individual states to set vessel limits (up to six fish per vessel) and seasons to best suit their needs.

The commission is also scheduled to recommend a slate of names to the Governor’s Office for nomination to at-large seats on the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council and South Atlantic Fishery Management Council; vote to send nominations for Region 4 Strategic Habitat Area for public and advisory committee comments; and adopt an implementation plan for the Coastal Habitat Protection Plan.
