North Carolina Marine Fisheries Proclamation FF-42-2020 opened the Atlantic Ocean commercial black sea bass fishery north of Cape Hatteras at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020 and set the harvest period and offload limits.

Vessels employing trawls can possess landing limits for other states, but it is unlawful to offload those fish in North Carolina.

The fishery will close by proclamation once the annual North Carolina quota is reached or at 6 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30, 2020, whichever occurs first.
