COMMENTS SOUGHT ON ARTIFICIAL REEF PLAN

MOREHEAD CITY Ė The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries will hold a series of meetings this month to get public input on updating the stateís master plan for artificial reefs.

The public is invited to attend the meetings and speak on subjects, such as best management practices and allowable gears, reef locations as well as reef monitoring, evaluation and marking.

The division is considering revisions to the plan that include prohibiting the use of some commercial fishing gears within a specified distance of artificial reefs.

Changes to the plan require approval of the division director. Upon receiving approval, the division will proceed through the Marine Fisheries Commission with any needed rulemaking activities.

Comments will be taken in conjunction with the commissionís regional advisory committee meetings set for:
