Memo

To: File
From: Trish Murphey
Date: January 15, 2014
Subject: RS-2-2014 Middle Marsh oyster research areas for UNC-IMS

Proclamation RS-2-2014 closes 7.92 acres of Coastal Fishing Waters to all types of fishing equipment. The gears that will be primarily affected are shellfish and finfish gears. Fishing for crustaceans is not a significant activity in this area. It is not anticipated that the closure will have a significant negative economic impact on fishing interests in the area due to the relatively small size of the sites that are closed. These sites are located in designated shellfish harvest area E-5 which encompasses 6323 acres and is one of ten designated shellfish harvest areas in Carteret County. These areas may have positively economic impact when the sanctuary designation expires due to the habitat created by the research plots.
