The purpose of this grant is to assist with renovations and equipment for the Ocracoke Fish House. This project will help preserve the operation of the Ocracoke Fish House, the last fish house on Ocracoke Island, and the commercial fishing industry on Ocracoke Island. During the renovation period, the Ocracoke Foundation will work with industry professionals to develop a long term marketing plan focused on Ocracoke’s clams, oysters, flounder and fresh fish. Once renovation is complete, the fish house will require additional employees year round. Increased operational capacity also has the potential of increasing income for over 30 commercial fishermen and enhancing sales tax revenue for the county.
