section .0500 – primary nursery areas


15A NCAC 10C .0501       SCOPE AND PURPOSE

To establish and protect those fragile inland waters which

support embryonic, larval or juvenile populations of marine or estuarine fish

or crustacean species.  These Rules will set forth permanent nursery areas in

inland fishing waters.  Nursery areas are necessary for the early growth and

development of virtually all of North Carolina's important marine or estuarine

fish or crustacean species.  Nursery areas need to be maintained, as much as

possible, in their natural state, and the fish and crustacean populations

within them must be permitted to develop in a normal manner with as little

interference from man as possible.
