Our Fleet

Our fleet of Deep Sea going vessels meet all State and Federal requirements. They provide extensive fishing data to these regulatory offices per trip end. Through these offices, as well as several Commercial fishing groups, we work to improve fishing techniques and conservation. Each of our shrimp trawl nets include turtle exclusion devices (TED) and Bycatch Reduction Devices (BRD). One of the biggest success stories in bycatch reduction was the development of the Turtle Excluder Device, which allows endangered sea turtles to escape shrimp trawls uninjured. The TED now boasts a nearly 100% reduction in the bycatch of endangered sea turtles. (Per the North Carolina Fisheries Association)
