North Carolina: Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project accepting applications

The North Carolina Coastal Federation is accepting applications from commercial watermen to assist in its annual on-the-water Lost Fishing Gear Recovery Project. The project is open to any fisherman with a Standard Commercial Fishing License in North Carolina. Those selected help the federation and the North Carolina Marine Patrol remove lost fishing gear from coastal waters during the no-potting period, typically from Jan. 15 to Feb. 7.  Compensation is $400 per boat, per day. Each boat is required to have two people onboard for safety reasons.  click here for the story, application details 09:18
