  • Fisheries ask general public to...

     The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries issued a news release encouraging the public to report any cold-stunned trout they may see in North Carolina coastal waters.

    During the winter, spotted seatrout move to deeper, warmer waters in coastal creeks, bays and the ocean. Cold stuns occur when there is a sudden drop in water temperature or prolonged periods of cold weather that makes the fish so sluggish, humans can harvest them with their hands, according to a N.C. Department of Environmental Quality news release issued Dec. 28.
