From North Carolina Fisheries Association – WE NEED INFO ON FISHING INDUSTRY DAMAGES!!!



We need as much information on damages the commercial fishing industry has sustained as a result of Hurricane Florence!

We know there will be huge losses from a future income standpoint, but that’s not what we’re looking for at the moment. We need to know about damage done to fish houses, boats, lost gear, etc. Also damages done to your homes, vehicles, or anything connected to commercial fishing.

We will be contacting federal and state officials and the first thing they want are numbers, so please help us with this information!

Regarding our industry helping others, also let us know what you may be able to do to help, such as ice or whatever else you can assist with.

Beaufort Inlet Seafood, (Brent Fulcher), is giving ice to local folks in need as long as supplies last. Brent said just show up at the fish house with a cooler!

We’re not sure how long it will last, but for the moment the best way to communicate is with my email, Facebook, or my cell number. Glenn Skinner and Aundrea O’Neal have communication problems in Carteret County but at the moment, I do not in Craven County. We don’t have power at home, but I’m using a generator.
