North Carolina Recreational Commercial Gear Landings
The Recreational Commercial Gear License (RCGL) is an annual license that allows recreational fishermen to use limited amounts of commercial gear to harvest seafood for their personal consumption. Seafood harvested under this license cannot be sold. Fishermen using this license must follow the regulations for recreational size and possession limits.
Statistics for RCGL landings were collected and compiled from 2002-2008. Those findings are reported here.
