Shrimp Season Will Open Sunday Midnight Opening of the shrimp season in inland waters is late this year. The season will open at midnight Sunday. The opening comes 26 days after last year's season and six days after the 1956 season opened. Ocean shrimpers have been catching very few and there is little hope of finding large quanti ties of shrimp in the creeks and bays. Those that are caught may run about 40 or SO count, com mented C. G. Holland, fisheries commissioner. Shrimping in the ocean is al lowed any lime. Shrimping in "in land waters", under control of the state, is permitted only by state regulation. The heavy freezes of the past winter took a toll of young shrimp and young finfish. Dead young of all species were found in experi mental trawls soon after the freezes. It was predicted then by Dr. A. F. Chestnut, director of the Institute of Fisheries Re search, that this coming shrimp season would be a lean one. Any shrimp taken will bring a good price. All boata engaged in shrimping must have licenses from the CAD Department's commercial fishcriei division at Morehead City.
