Division of Marine Fisheries conducting survey of
North Carolina seafood dealers

8-point rule

 

 

MOREHEAD CITY – North Carolina commercial seafood dealers will be invited to participate in a survey conducted by the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries in the following weeks.

The survey is a follow up to previously conducted data collection in 2010, and seeks information on
the economic and social status of North Carolina’s commercial seafood dealers, as well as factors that affect their business operations.

Dealers will be asked to estimate their revenues and expenses by category, discuss the most important factors to their business’ success, and evaluate other operational and financial components of running a seafood dealership in North Carolina

All registered dealers will receive a packet in the mail containing an invitation to complete the survey, an enclosed paper survey, a pre-paid envelope to mail it back in, and a link to take the survey online if they prefer. The packets will be mailed this week.

Individual answers to questions will be kept confidential; however, aggregate results from participants will be included in a written report that will be made available to the public.

Non-respondents will receive a reminder phone call from division staff. Dealers who receive such a call can verify that the person calling is a division employee by asking the caller to confirm any of the dealer’s contact information, the dealer’s license number, or the unique ID number provided on their survey invitation letter.

For the survey results to be truly representative of North Carolina seafood dealers, it is very important that dealers participate in the survey and answer as many questions as possible.

The survey is funded by the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program, which is a partnership of state, regional, and federal fisheries agencies collecting dependent data information. This information will be used to better understand the socioeconomic status of our state’s seafood dealers, how that has changed in the past 10 years and how the division can better support North Carolina’s dealers and fisheries into the future.

For more information, contact David Dietz, Fisheries Economics Program manager with the Division of Marine Fisheries at 919-808-8573, or by email at David.Dietz@ncdenr.gov
