Fish FarmsThe following is excerpted from WRAL’s recent video discussing aquaculture in NC. This well-documented overview provides another look at our dynamic and growing industry. Watch the video below and read on for additional information.

Caviar and crawfish from the Carolinas–who knew? WRAL’s latest documentary, Fish Farms, explores one of North Carolina’s best kept secrets. Aquaculture, or the farming of fish and seafood, is a thriving industry that brings over $60 million in revenue to the state each year​. The documentary, hosted by WRAL News Anchor Debra Morgan, premieres Wednesday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. These days, from the mountains to the coast, North Carolina farmers are raising rainbow trout, oysters, catfish, bass, crawfish and even sturgeon, for caviar that’s shipped all over the world. With exclusive access and behind the scenes footage, Fish Farms takes viewers inside our state’s aquaculture, exploring its origins, the growth of the industry, why traditional farmers made the switch and how the process actually works. It’s a fascinating look into a huge industry most people don’t know is happening in their back yards. Clay Johnson is the Producer and Writer. Jay Jennings is the Videographer and Editor. Debra Morgan is the host. Aired on WRAL-TV in Raleigh and WILM-TV in Wilmington, Wednesday, July 14 at 7:30 p.m. and on WRAZ FOX50, Saturday, July 17 at 4:30 p.m.
