The North Carolina Marine & Estuary Foundation is excited to officially launch a partnership with the local outdoor TV series Carolina All Out. The Foundation and Carolina All Out share a vision: for North Carolina to become the premier fishing destination in the country. The collaboration has been developing for several months and will emphasize the importance of healthy fisheries.
Chris Douglas, owner and host of Carolina All Out, spent 16 years of his career traveling across the world pursuing wild game for national TV series and networks. In 2016, Chris decided it was time to “bring it home” and showcase the unique natural resources North Carolina has to offer hunters and anglers. Five years later, Carolina All Out is in its sixth season, reaching over 3 million households statewide.
“We are excited to have the North Carolina Marine & Estuary Foundation join our strong and growing group of partners as we bring new hunting and fishing experiences to our viewers,” Chris Douglas said. “Our coastal waters have the potential to support world-class fisheries, and we look forward to spotlighting conservation needs on our adventures up and down our coastline.”
The North Carolina Marine & Estuary Foundation’s Executive Director, Chad Thomas, was recently featured on Season 6, Episode 1: Cape Lookout Flounder Gigging.
“When we have strong, robust fisheries, we’re going to have people who want to come and see these fisheries and be a part of these fisheries, and the whole economy thrives,” Thomas said. “That’s the idea we’re pushing, not just accepting status quo and stable fisheries, but how do we get to world-class?”
