Trawlers docked in Harkers Island
APNEP’s work to protect and restore North Carolina’s sounds improves the environment, human health, and the quality of life for our citizens and visitors. But did you know that APNEP also works to promote economic opportunity?

NC Catch supports local seafood marketing initiatives throughout the state. Founded in 2012, the organization serves as an umbrella nonprofit organization for four local catch groups along the coast: Carteret Catch, Ocracoke Fresh, Brunswick Catch, and Outer Banks Catch.
