NC - Fisheries Division changes public listening method for Eligibility Board meeting

Based on the current guidance to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, the division has cancelled the public listening stations at its offices in Morehead City and Wilmington; however, the public may listen to the meeting through a conference call line by dialing 919-420-1374.

To avoid disrupting the meeting, members of the public are asked to mute themselves and not announce their names when they call.

The board will consider applications that are deemed complete and were submitted by March 4.

The board meets two to three times a year to consider license applications. For directions on applying for a commercial fishing license, go to http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/commercial-fishing-license-information [portal.ncdenr.org] and click on the Eligibility Pool Application link.
