TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WECT) – The Topsail Beach Town Council unanimously voted to adopt a resolution opposing seismic airgun testing at their meeting Wednesday night.

Topsail Beach and Carolina Beach both passed resolutions opposing the testing, while Kure Beach voted not to oppose it.

Seismic airguns are currently being considered to look for oil and gas deposits deep below the ocean floor in an area that stretches from Delaware to Florida according to the Oceana organization.

Those opposed to the testing say the testing would be hazardous to marine life in our area.
