Fishing gear cleanup planned for North Carolina waters
from Public Radio East
The North Carolina Coastal Federation is seeking commercial watermen for their annual on-the-water Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project. "It's important to remove this lost gear because it creates navigational hazards for general boaters, it creates hazards for other fishermen that get caught in this lost gear, and it also causes hazards to marine life that get trapped possibly inside crab pots such as finfish or blue crab," said Coastal Education Coordinator with the North Carolina Coastal Federation Sara Hallas.
