In a victory for North Carolina's fishing industry, U.S. Senator Kay Hagan (NC) today announced that the FY2013 Coast Guard Reauthorization bill, approved by the Senate last week, includes a provision that allows the Wanchese Fishing Company to add a new fishing vessel to its fleet, expand its operations, and hire new employees.

"The fishing industry is a key part of North Carolina's coastal economy. I am pleased to have worked with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to enable the Wanchese Fishing Company to expand its fleet," said Hagan. "My number one priority is growing jobs in North Carolina."

Sam Daniels, President of Wanchese Fish Company said today that the "Wanchese Fish Company and it's Board of Directors would like to extend appreciation to Senator Hagan and the North Carolina delegation for passing legislation to allow the vessel Texas Star to fish."
