Fisheries Newsletter Focuses on Latest Coastal Habitat Plan

MOREHEAD CITY – When it comes to managing for healthy fish populations, you can’t ignore habitat issues.

The latest edition of Fish Eye News focuses on some of these concerns with articles that discuss some of the new priorities for implementation of the latest Coastal Habitat Protection Plan, including the need to remove fish migration barriers such as dams and the need for further research into how medications and other chemicals impact fish reproduction capabilities.

Also in this edition is an article highlighting the state’s Recreational Water Quality Program, which is now housed under the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries.

Fish Eye News is a web-based newsletter issued by the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries’ Public Affairs Section. It is posted on the agency’s website at http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/fish-eye-news-0811.

The intent of Fish Eye News is to draw attention to issues affecting marine fisheries in North Carolina and promote a better understanding of agency functions. Publications may reprint all or part of the articles.

For more information, contact Patricia Smith, the division’s public information officer, at (252) 808-8025 or Tricia.Smith@ncdenr.gov.
