GRANTSBORO, Pamlico County - The Pamlico Chamber of Commerce will hear Tuesday about the potential local effects from a recent Marine Fisheries Commission approval of changes to rules in the shrimping industry, according to an article written in the New Bern Sun Journal.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Pamlico Community College's Delamar Center and it is open to the public. Jerry Schill, president of the commercial fishing lobby group North Carolina Fisheries Association will be the keynote speaker.

The newspaper article says Schill will talk about the February vote on a rule-making petition brought by the N.C. Wildlife Federation that could ultimately limit shrimping to three days a week on the Intracoastal Waterway and other estuaries and four days a week on the ocean up to three miles out, among other proposals.
