A new podcast series featuring the voices of fishermen, scientists, environmental advocates, and resource managers instrumental in shaping the most significant fisheries legislation in NC history is available online.
The 1997 NC Fisheries Reform Act series consists of three episodes capturing the environmental and social conditions that served as impetus for reform, the political path to legislative approval, and perspectives on the act twenty years after it became law.
The story is told using excerpts from oral history interviews conducted last year. The interviews and a discussion guide suitable for use in classrooms and public forums are also online.
The podcasts, the discussion guide, and links to the oral history recordings and transcripts can be found on the project page - https://www.raisingthestory.com/nc-fisheries-reform-act-an-oral-history-perspective/ .
