Commercial Fishermen Needed to Remove Marine Debris
MANTEO - The N. C. Coastal Federation is accepting applications from commercial fishermen to help get marine debris out of the water this winter.

The federation and the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, in January, will continue a pilot project to remove abandoned fishing gear from waters in northeastern North Carolina. Using a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the federation will employ commercial watermen to help the N.C. Marine Patrol remove old gear from Jan. 15 to Feb. 7. No crab pots are allowed in the water during that time. The cleanup is scheduled to begin on Jan. 19, if the weather cooperates. This project is intended to improve habitat and water quality and support commercial watermen in northeastern North Carolina.

The collection will take place from the Currituck Sound southward to Oregon Inlet, including parts of the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds. Local fishermen with knowledge of these waters will be given preference.  Side-scan sonar will be used on a limited number of boats to detect abandoned gear underwater. A side-scan sonar unit will be provided for these boats, and an additional day of training will be required for these fishermen.

To qualify, fishermen must have filed at least one commercial landing trip ticket with the division within the past year.  Fishermen will receive $300 a day and their mates will receive $100. Three days of work are guaranteed. About 12 fishermen will be accepted, and volunteers are also needed.

Applications are due on Oct. 17. Participants will be notified by Oct. 31.  Applications are available online on the N.C. Coastal Federation's web site,;  Oneal's Sea Harvest in Wanchese; The Rope Shop in Manteo; and Full Circle Crab Co. in Columbia. 

For more information, or an application contact Ladd Bayliss at 252.473.1607 or
