Fisherman in the Pamlico Sound
and upper Core Sound will have to get used to some changes today.
Sections along the North Carolina
coast are being closed off to large-mesh, grill net fishing.
The North Carolina Division
of Marine Fisheries said the closure begins Wednesday, an hour before sunset.
Several recent instances
of sea turtles getting tangled in the nets caused the closures.
They remain in effect
through the first of September.
