North Carolina's Division of Marine Fisheries recently issued a reminder to fishermen that the recreational season for black sea bass closes north of Cape Hatteras at midnight Dec. 31, 2013.
The closure complies with regulations implemented by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission and the Mid Atlantic Fishery Management Council through the Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass Fisheries Management Plan.
The 2014 recreational management measures for black sea bass will be established later this winter.
For more information, contact the N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries at 252-808-8009.
