This series, held monthly, highlights research on coastal topics and issues in northeast North Carolina. This month, the program will feature Dr. Michael Piehler, UNC CSI Estuarine Ecology and Human Health program head and Associate Professor at UNC Chapel Hill’s Institute of Marine Sciences. Dr. Piehler’s presentation, entitled “On a Highway to Shell: Assessing Oyster Reef Function Throughout the Southeastern United States”, will cover some of his recent research on oyster reefs and the methods used to assess their function. The program will be held at 6:00PM on Monday, December 12 at the UNC Coastal Studies Institute located at 850 NC 345 in Wanchese, NC. The presentation is free and the public is welcomed and encouraged to attend. Oyster reefs are important contributors to the function of coastal ecosystems and also provide tremendous value to people. Examining their function throughout a broad geographic area improves our understanding of the degree to which their function is generalizable. Dr. Piehler and his research program assessed the structure and function of sub-tidal oyster reefs from Cape Hatteras though the Gulf of Mexico. Reef function (impacts on fi sh communities, nutrient cycling and reef morphology) was found to vary in several ways, including being closely linked to tidal range. This program will be streamed live at http://, and the online viewing audience will be able to ask the presenter questions via an online chat room.

Commercial watermen are selected to participate in the program annually to help the federation and the North Carolina Marine Patrol remove lost fi shing gear during the “no-potting” period, typically from Jan. 15 to Feb. 7. In January 2016, 11 crews, with Marine Patrol offi cers, removed 753 pots from areas of District 1. Combined with a shoreline cleanup, the project removed over 7.5 tons of fi shing gear and marine debris from northeastern North Carolina waters. The 2017 project will take place in select areas within all three Marine Patrol districts, statewide. To qualify, watermen must have a valid Standard Commercial Fishing License (SCFL) and guarantee availability for work from Jan. 18 through Feb. 7, 2017. They must attend a mandatory training session to learn general project protocol and how to use project equipment (data collection tablets, and for a subset of watermen, side-scan sonars). Compensation is $400 per boat, per day. Each boat is required to have two people onboard for safety reasons. In some locations, more than one week of work could be possible. The project is funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Marine Debris Program and is intended to improve habitat and water quality, as well as support coastal economies. Applications are due Friday, Jan. 13, 2017, and are downloadable at Watermen are accepted on a fi rst-come, first-served basis, and few positions remain open. Completed applications can be mailed to P.O. Box 276, Wanchese, NC 27981 or faxed to 252- 473-2402.
