Morehead City, NC – The For-Hire Stakeholder Advisory Group will meet at 6 p.m. Nov. 10 at the Craven County Cooperative Extension Center auditorium, 300 Industrial Drive, New Bern.
The group will discuss the pros and cons of a state logbook summarizing the catch of state licensed charter and guide boat captains. The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries does not plan to request authority for a for-hire logbook at this time; however, the group will be asked for input as to what type of logbook, if any, they might like to see in the future.
The division is required to submit findings of the study to the N.C. General Assembly in January.
For more information, contact Don Hesselman, License and Statistics Section chief with the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, at 252-808-8099 or Don.Hesselman@ncdenr.gov.
