Striped Mullet Public Listening Session


The North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) announced 5 days ago the one and only question and answer listening session for striped mullet will be tomorrow (Tuesday, December 19th). Although this is short notice, as well as being 6 days before Christmas when kids are out of school and many of us already have plans with family and friends, I hope as many of you can listen in as possible. This meeting will be online only and will consist of a presentation followed by questions from the public. 


You must register at the link below and you will receive an email invitation with a link to join the listening session. Make sure register and you download Webex before the meeting begins.
