Great visits with Legislators on Capitol Hill Tuesday. I am honored to have been asked again to tell my story as a local NC Fishing Guide and share what I have observed NC Sea Grant has done for NC. We had great conversations with the Legislators and their staff during this visit. Many very important issues were discussed which included fisheries management, water management/quality, Hurricane/storm recovery and resilience. The message of this trip was to relay to Legislators why the National Sea Grant Program needs to be funded for the 2019/2020 budget. I joined the Executive Director of NC Sea Grant and WRRI (water resources research institute) Susan White, Deputy Director John Fear and the Mayor of Plymouth, NC Brian Roth for this visit. Always great to see bipartisan legislator support for the Sea Grant program!

    Thanks for caring. It's the nets, 100s of miles of nets, for decades, slowly and silently wiping out our bountiful fisherman's paradise....just not the fish like there was in the 60s. NC has failed to protect our resources, for our children. Too bad.
