III. GENERAL INFORMATION

A. This proclamation is issued under the authority of N.C.G.S. 170.4; 113-170.5; 113-182; 113-221.1; 143B-289.52; and N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission Rules 15A NCAC 03H .0103, 03M .0501 and 03M .0512.

B. It is unlawful to violate the provisions of any proclamation issued by the Fisheries Director under his delegated authority pursuant to N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission Rule 15A NCAC 03H .0103.

C. The intent of this proclamation is to manage the commercial red drum fishery as specified in the N.C. Red Drum Fishery Management Plan. The annual harvest limit for the fishing year September through August is 250,000 pounds. However, the Plan requires any overage from one year to be deducted from the subsequent year. The September through April harvest period harvest limit will be reduced from 150,000 pounds to 137,324 pounds due to an overage in this period from the prior q fishing year.

D. In accordance with N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission Rule 15A NCAC 03M .0501(c), it is unlawful to possess red drum less than 18 inches total length or greater than 27 inches total length.

E. In accordance with N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission Rule 15A NCAC 3M .0501(d), it is unlawful to possess more than one red drum per person per day taken by hook-and-line or for recreational purposes.

F. Contact the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, P.O. Box 769, Morehead City, NC 28557
252-726- 7021 or 800-682-2632 for more information or visit the division website at http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/.

G. This proclamation supersedes Proclamation FF-78-2014 dated December 2, 2014. This proclamation increases the commercial red drum harvest limit to seven (7) fish. The division has analyzed trip ticket data and determined that sufficient poundage remains within the harvest period to raise the daily landing limit in order to minimize discards.
