Gill net fishing in North Carolina may be coming to an end because of federal and environmental concerns about sea turtles, but commercial fishermen are not going down without a fight.
In an effort to reach a compromise that will save North Carolina’s gill net fishing industry, the Marine Fisheries Commission (MFC) voted last Friday to continue to allow large mesh gill net fishing, restricting it to four days a week.
The MFC had been considering eliminating large mesh nets from May 15 to Dec. 15 to prevent interactions with sea turtles.
