A new educational video features NCCOS scientists describing the importance of water quality in North Carolina estuaries for coastal ecology, human health, food supply, and the state’s economy. Bordered by the famed Outer Banks, North Carolina’s estuaries are home to biologically rich and diverse coastal habitats and productive fisheries. NCCOS scientists from the Center for Coastal Fisheries and Habitat Research have conducted decades of research in the estuaries of North Carolina and are applying this knowledge to understand changes resulting from land and agricultural development, climate change, sea level rise, marine debris, and use by industries such as shellfish aquaculture. The video was produced through a partnership with the Core Sound Waterfowl and Heritage Museum and the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries.
