MEDIA ADVISORY: Commercial Fishing Resource
Funding committee meeting scheduled

8-point rule

 

 

MOREHEAD CITY — The N.C. Commercial Fishing Resource Funding Committee will meet at 10 a.m. Oct. 18 at the Department of Environmental Quality’s Washington Regional Office, 943 Washington Square Mall, Washington.

The committee is scheduled to discuss funding options for the Commercial Fishing Resource Fund.

The meeting is open to the public. An agenda can be found here .

The fund pays for observer coverage to fulfill the state’s obligations required by incidental take permits for sea turtles and Atlantic sturgeon under the federal Endangered Species Act. Without the incidental take permits, the state’s gill net fisheries must close.

Any additional money from the fund is to be used for projects to develop and support sustainable commercial fishing in the state. Spending from the fund must be approved by the Funding Committee, which is made up of six commercial fishing representatives, and the Marine Fisheries Commission.

The Marine Fisheries Commission has delegated its funding decisions to a Marine Fisheries Commission Commercial Fishing Resource Fund Committee comprised of members of the commission holding the three commercial fishing seats.

For more information, contact Beth Govoni, Administrative Services Office Section chief with the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, at 252-808-8005 or Beth.Govoni@ncdenr.gov .
