Public input sought for Kingfish Fishery Management Plan review

MOREHEAD CITY – The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries is asking the public to submit comments on issues they would like to see addressed in an upcoming Kingfish Fishery Management Plan.

The division has started a mandated review of the N.C. Kingfish Fishery Management Plan, adopted by the N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission in 2007. The agency is soliciting public feedback as part of an internal process to determine what procedural method to take in reviewing the plan.

If changes in management strategies or rules are needed, the division will pursue a plan amendment, where division staff and an advisory committee develop positions on specific issues that need to be addressed. If changes in management strategies are not required, the division will proceed with a revision, which is a more abbreviated process that involves updating data and fishery information contained in the plan.

Written comments will be accepted until Feb. 17 and should be addressed to Beth Egbert, N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, P.O. Box 1965, Manteo, N.C. 27954, or sent by email to Beth.Egbert@ncdenr.gov or to Kevin Brown, N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, P.O. Box 769, Morehead City, N.C. 28557 or sent by email to Kevin.H.Brown@ncdenr.gov.

State law requires the division to prepare a fishery management plan for adoption by the Marine Fisheries Commission for all commercially and recreationally significant species or fisheries that comprise state marine and estuarine resources. These plans provide management strategies designed to ensure long-term viability of the species.

Kingfish are species of fish, also known as sea mullet and whiting, which are found off the North Carolina coast and in its rivers and sounds.
