North Carolina Fisheries Association Weekly Update for 08/01/2022

If you’re a regular reader of the NCFA’s weekly newsletter, you’ve seen many articles lately pointing out the dis-information being distributed by the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of North Carolina. Unfortunately, they make it very easy to find a new subject to write about each week, so in fact, I bet almost anyone can do it.

Even you!

So, that said, let’s see if our readers have learned anything over the last couple of months. I challenge everyone who reads this to go to the CCA NC
website, click on “Advocacy” and read the following position papers.

• Striped Bass IN the CSMA
• Inshore Shrimp Trawling
• Hidden Cost of Gill nets
• Striped Bass Letter by Chris Elkins

See how many misleading statements, half-truths, and outright lies you can find in each position paper and let us know by commenting on our Facebook page or by sending us an email. I’m curious to see how many of you care enough about North Carolina’s fishing families and fresh local seafood to take the time to read this “stuff” and help the NCFA set the record straight.

Don’t let me down!

Take the time to educate yourself, educate your neighbors, and champion the truth!

Glenn Skinner, NCFA Executive Director
