Focal Point: “Net Loss”
New WRAL Documentary Looks at Struggles of North Carolina Fishermen
Airs Wednesday Sept 24, 2008, 7pm

“There’s only a handful of us left and every year more and more gets out of it and nobody lets children get in it and when we’re done it’s done and it seems like nobody cares about the commercial fisherman at all.”
--John Dyer, Harker’s Island shrimp fishermen

For years North Carolina’s commercial fishermen have had to fight foreign competition while struggling to survive domestic regulations that limit their catch. Now they face skyrocketing fuel prices that keep some fishing boats tied to the dock. WRAL’s new Focal Point documentary “Net Loss” examines the struggles North Carolina fishermen face trying to stay in business. The documentary is hosted by WRAL-TV Anchor/Reporter Lynda Loveland and airs Wednesday, Sept 24, 2008 at 7pm on WRAL-TV.
