Prawn culture to be featured on NC Now!

North Carolina Cooperative Extension will be featured on UNC-TV's NC Now! Area Specialized Agent Mike Frinsko is working area farmers who want to raise freshwater prawn as an alternative crop. This story produced by the video team in Communication Services shows how Frinsko is working with former tobacco farmers Doug and Johnny Barbee and their partner Gene Wiseman to put North Carolina on the map as a prawn-producing state.

Barring any last-minute changes due to fair coverage, the feature will air Friday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m. on UNC-TV.

Look for more Extension stories on UNC-TV in the coming months. If you have a story idea, please contact Sonya Williams Harris at sonya_harris@ncsu.edu.
