Brunswick County to allow roadside shrimp vendors

BRUNSWICK COUNTY — An update on the future of roadside shrimp vendors: The Brunswick County Health Department says there is not enough evidence to justify regulating the vendors based on health concerns.

Some shrimpers had complained that roadside vendors pose a health risk, in part because they sell shrimp out of a cooler even when temperatures hit 90 degrees.

New Hanover County requires vendors to have a permit and inspection from county health officials.

It also prohibits selling processed or cooked seafood from the side of the road.

Pender County does not regulate roadside seafood vendors.
