MOREHEAD CITY Three advisory committees to the N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission will hold separate meetings in July to discuss whether concerns with the striped mullet stock warrant management changes in the fishery.

The committees’ recommendations, along with that of the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries, will be presented to the Marine Fisheries Commission at its August 15-16 meeting in Raleigh.

Amendment 1 to the N.C. Striped Mullet Fishery Management Plan, adopted in 2015, requires the division to initiate further analysis of the striped mullet data if commercial landings fall below 1.13 million pounds or above 2.76 million pounds in any given year. In 2016, commercial landings of striped mullet fell by 15 percent from the previous year to 964,348, triggering the analysis.

A 2018 update of the state’s 2013 striped mullet stock assessment found that overfishing is not occurring, meaning the fishing mortality rate is not too high; however, it cannot be determined if the stock is overfished (whether the population is too small).

For more information about striped mullet, contact Daniel Zapf at 252-948-3875.
