Will North Carolina Government Help NC Commercial Fishing Industry?

If you have read or know anything about the North Carolina fishing industry and the fishermen, you already know about the downward spiral of their businesses. Recently, I read another important article in the Fayetteville Observer titled Our View: Government can help save our state’s dying fishing industry.

When you think of the support given farmers (another group having a hard time), why does it not make sense to help in similar fashion our state's commercial fishermen? To me, it makes perfect sense to work towards preserving an industry that supports the local economy as well as bring us much better tasting seafood than the imports ever can!

Please take a moment to read the article in the Observer and, if you agree, contact your governmental leaders to state your opinion. The politicians work for us and need to know what we want for our great state.

The choice is yours!
