Coastal Angling Program

CAP is the collective title that encompasses a set of recreational fishing sampling and survey programs run by the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries. The goal of the Coastal Angling Program (CAP) is to improve the quality and quantity of recreational fisheries data. Information gathered through CAP is essential for the development of the state's fisheries management plans.

Information gathering includes mail, telephone and electronic surveys of those who hold a N.C. Coastal Recreational Fishing License. It also includes people survey fishermen at boat ramps, on the beach and piers, sampling of upper estuarine waters species such as striped bass and participation in the Marine Recreational Information Program, a national survey program.
