As part of the Water Quality for Fisheries Program (WQ4F) the Industry Working Group(IWG), made up of commercial and recreational fisheries representatives, was developed in early 2021.
On December 18, 2021, members of the IWG, Coastal Carolina Riverwatch board and staff, and supporting members joined in celebration (or shellebration) for the first WQ4F Oyster Roast.
It was a gorgeous (spring-like) day along North River, at the Oyster House. Members enjoyed fresh local oysters, vegetarian chili, fresh local-made corn bread, and desserts. This was a waste-free event supported by the waste reduction team at Coastal Carolina Riverwatch.
The Industry Working Group, made up of (equal representation) commercial and recreational fisheries representatives, participated in a series of facilitated meetings to address each of the 5 priority water quality concerns.
2021 Completed Goals of the IWG:
