“Spiny Dogfish” – also known as “Cape Shark” - are abundant in North Carolina’s fall & winter coastal waters. They’re now shipped to Massachusetts for processing, then exported…mostly for fish & chips.

A pair of Carteret county oystermen have invented a special foundation material that speeds the collection and growth of wild oysters in sounds and rivers. Their method is not only an alternate method of producing so-called “seed” oysters for aquaculture but also has implications for restoring wild oyster reefs and marine habitat to form “living shorelines.”
