MOREHEAD CITY – Every coastal recreational fisherman should understand how to fish in an ethical manner. Every coastal recreational fisherman should know the latest size and bag limits and fishing seasons.

The Spring 2011 edition of Fish Eye News focuses on these matters with articles that show the most responsible way to catch-and-release a spotted seatrout and practice other ethical angling techniques. Other articles identify coastal recreational fishing regulations that have changed since last year and describe the various fisheries agencies and commissions that enact these regulations.

Also featured is an article on the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries’ Aging Lab and how the technicians there can tell the age of a fish.

Fish Eye News is a web-based newsletter issued by the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries’ Public Affairs Section. It is posted on the agency’s website at

The intent of Fish Eye News is to draw attention to issues affecting marine fisheries in North Carolina and promote a better understanding of agency functions. Publications may reprint all or part of the articles.
