Division of Marine Fisheries Harvest Statistics
The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries obtains statistics on recreational and commercial harvest of finfish, shellfish and crustaceans. Recreational statistics are conducted under the Coastal Angling Program while commercial statistics are captured through the Trip Ticket Program.
Each year the License and Statistics Program publishes an Annual Statistics Report containing summary statistics from the recreational, commercial, license and economics programs within the section. This report is a great starting point for interested parties to learn details about various programs and to access many fisheries statistics. More specific information can be obtained by getting in touch with one of the contacts listed here.
Recreational Catch Statistics Important Note: Documents containing recreational fishing catch statistics that were prepared before 02/01/2012 will be updated to reflect changes in the methodology used to produce estimates. For more information contact Doug.Mumford@ncdenr.gov.
