The public may submit comments in writing and at a public meeting from 1-5 p.m.  June 17 at the New Bern Riverfront Convention Center, 203 South Front St., New Bern.

At the meeting, members of the public may speak for three minutes each until time runs out. Due to the time constraint, the commission chairman urges individuals to bring written comments to submit in case the meeting ends before they have an opportunity to speak.

The six proposals are part of a draft supplement to the N.C. Southern Flounder Fishery Management Plan. The proposals can be found online at http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/ under Hot Topics. 

The commission is scheduled to vote on what management measures to implement at its August business meeting in Raleigh.

Till next time....
Tight lines!
