Stock Status Reports
The North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries stock status reports are issued annually and serve as a general barometer of the overall health of North Carolina’s fishery resources. The stock status in a given year is based on fisheries data available in the prior year. The information in the stock status reports are used to prioritize development of fishery management plans and subsequent plan amendments.
Important Note: Documents containing recreational fishing catch statistics that were prepared before 02/01/2012 will be updated to reflect changes in the methodology used to produce estimates. For more information contact Doug.Mumford@ncdenr.gov.
