These include having the Division
of Marine Fisheries summarize
available information on menhaden
for the commissioners' study and approving
creation of an ad hoc advisory
board with broad representation
to advise the commission and
subcommittee on menhaden issues in
The ad hoc group is to present its
first batch of recommendations on
menhaden at the Commission's June
14-15 meeting at Morehead City, in
time for any regulatory action taken
to go into effect for the fall season
that begins in October. These are to

all users affected by regulation of the
menhaden fishery. "I believe you
will see some sort of action," he said.
"I'd be shocked if you see nothing."
Those favoring regulation of the
menhaden industry say that without
constraints, the menhaden will disappcar
in 10 to 15 years from overfishing.
North Carolina is the only South
Atlantic state that doesn't regulate
the industry, but Costlow said other
states liave regulated it for varying

Brunswick County shores, and in
another, three miles off the state's
