PINE KNOLL SHORES, CARTERET COUNTY -

It will cost more to visit North Carolina's three aquariums next year.
    
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources is proposing increasing admission prices by about $3 likely beginning the first of March.
    
That means adults would then pay almost $11. Members of the military and seniors would pay just under $10 and children between 3 and 12 would pay almost $9.
    
An agency rule allows the increase to take place, but the admission price increases still need formal approval to become permanent. The aquariums are taking public comment through Jan. 9.
