There was actually a discussion about fish last week in the General Assembly! At our request a meeting was arranged with some coastal legislators about the status of commercial fishing in North Carolina. Glenn Skinner & I spoke to the group for about an hour.


On Sunday a memorial was held for Susan West in Hatteras who passed away last fall.  NCFA Board member Dewey Hemilright, Thomas Newman and I attended. I will write more about the memorial and about Susan’s advocacy for commercial fishing families later. As is always the case for something like this, you get to see many folks that you haven’t seen for quite a while. It was good to see so many familiar faces at a very fitting tribute for Susan.

God bless,
