Come experience the thrill of the haul-up as you walk in the boots of watermen with the North Carolina Aquarium! Venture out to catch shrimp and crabs, as you realize what it takes to harvest seafood and bring it to your table. Campers will fish from a local pier or two, identify local catch, tour a fish packing house, and race to see who can head shrimp the fastest. Discover more about sea turtles and watermen efforts to save these animals from the perils of their nets. Do you think that you could clean fish, mend nets, recycle oyster shells, and prepare a daily catch? From catching to conservation, see a waterman’s side of seafood!
