The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries will hold three outreach meetings in the coming weeks on the central and southern coast to talk with charter/for-hire fishing owners and operators.
Division Director Kathy Rawls will host the meetings to discuss the needs of the for-hire industry.
The meetings will be similar to the ones held this past fall in Manteo and Hatteras where those attending the meeting can personally voice their concerns to Rawls and other Division staff.
- Tuesday, March 28, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Cape Fear Community College Room #387, Union Station 502 N. Front St., Wilmington
- Thursday, March 30, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Carteret Community College Bryant Student Center, 3505 Arendell St., Morehead City
- Tuesday, April 4, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., David R. Sandifer Administration Building, Board of Commissioners Chambers, 30 Government Center Drive Bolivia
Rawls has emphasized outreach and education as a focus area for the Division since she became director in May 2021. She has made it a priority to find new ways to communicate with the fishing public.
