   Cucalorus Connect Panel Discusses Accelerating North Carolina's Seafood Economy
by Jessica Maurer, WilmingtonBiz
Posted: Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 3:37PM EST

One of the topics during the recent Cucalorus Connect conference was the "Acceleration of the North Carolina Seafood Economy." 

The session included a panel led by David “Clammerhead” Cessna of Sandbar Oyster Company; Barbara Garrity-Blake, co-author of Living at the Water’s Edge and instructor in marine fisheries policy at the Duke University Marine Laboratory; and Ryan Speckman, co-founder of Locals Seafood.
 
Panelists identified several key problems within the U.S. fishing industry, including the fact that 90 percent of all seafood consumed in the U.S. is imported. With a lack of domestic processing facilities, the U.S. is bringing in seafood from across the world, in many cases from countries with scant regulations regarding the handling of seafood. This leads to a wide scope of issues ranging from mislabeling to quality control, panelists said.
