Following the meeting, an audio recording will be posted online.

The commission is scheduled to:

  • Continue discussion from the November meeting on goals and objectives for the Shrimp Fishery Management Plan Amendment 2.
  • Receive information on the Fiscal Analysis of Rules Associated with N.C. Wildlife Federation’s Petition for Rulemaking.
