N.C. Seafood Industrial Park Authority

Current Administrative Rules

N.C. Gen. Stat. §150B-21.3A, adopted in 2013, requires state agencies to review existing rules every 10 years. As N.C. Department of Commerce rules are reviewed and become available for public comment, they will be listed on Current Administrative Rules.

The N.C. Seafood Industrial Park Authority, an eleven-member state board whose members come from counties in the region, operates the three marine Parks. Through the Authority, the State of North Carolina engages in "promoting, developing, constructing, equipping, maintaining and operating the seafood industrial parks within the State." The Seafood Park Authority has the power to set and regulate land lease fees, building rental fees, and make most operational decisions necessary to attract and keep tenants in the state's seafood industrial facilities. The Authority leases land to tenants who typically building their own buildings, thus avoiding costly capital outlays for property. In some instances, the Authority will erect a building for tenants. The Authority’s flexibility and "can do" attitude over the years has created a business friendly environment in all three facilities.

If you have a business (or have ever dreamed of operating one) that is directly seafood/marine-related, or supports either of these industries, you should visit, call, fax, or email us at the Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park to get details.
