For every pound of shrimp caught in North Carolina waters by shrimp trawls, about four pounds of finfish and other marine life are caught, killed and shoveled overboard after being culled from shrimp harvests. North Carolina's sounds and estuaries are highly productive nursery areas that provide vital habitat to juvenile fish before they mature and have the opportunity to spawn and reproduce. Shrimp trawling activity is highest in North Carolina’s sensitive sounds, where trawling destroys fragile habitat areas and devastates substantial quantities of juvenile fish. The harmful impact of trawling on fisheries demands urgent and immediate action, and a new approach to managing NC waters to protect the creatures and people who depend on them, now and for generations to come.
