For years, the North Carolina commercial fishermen have been bearing the brunt of attempts from outside interests to seize control of North Carolina residents' food supply. The industry is being fined and regulated out of existence for admitted personal gain. This is a report that outlines only a portion of what NC fishermen have gone through in order to be allowed to provide locally-caught seafood, as well as the parties interested in the destruction of their industry and the individual roles of North Carolina law makers in helping to push this agenda.

There is a lot of content that I wanted to include in this video. but for time's sake wasn't able to. The commercial fishermen are also hindered in their activities by lawsuits filed against them individually from government entities, the state's failure to fund the dredging of an inlet (last session the NCGA raised licensing fees once again so that the fishermen are forced to pay for maintaining the state's inlet (essentially another toll), while the state will only provide 1/2 of 1 percent of the gas tax budget - a tax that we all pay for these very purposes - meanwhile the state highway account continually increases in funds), the inability of the state to reconstruct the Bonner Bridge (the only transportation access to Cape Hatteras) due to a lawsuit filed by the Southern Environmental Law Center, and much more. Perhaps a follow-up video will be in order sometime down the road? Leave your input - THANK YOU!
