The Alaska Board of Fisheries meeting addressing issues affecting Cook Inlet will take placed March 26 through April 2, according to a press release from the agency.

In addition to Cook Inlet fishing, topics to be addressed at the meeting include issues related to Kodiak, Westward, arctic shellfish and shellfish general provisions, and Prince William Sound shrimp and supplemental issues.

The event was originally scheduled for earlier this year, but was pushed back because of COVID-19 restrictions and so as not to interfere with the Southeast and Yakutat Finfish and Shellfish meeting.

Board members will consider 45 different proposals regarding multiple shellfish regulations during the meeting. Three of these include agenda change requests accepted by board members in their October 2021 work session.

The public is invited to give testimony, the press release states. In addition, written public comments on specific proposals may be submitted by March 11 to be included in the board’s workbook before the statewide meeting. After March 11, comments will still be accepted to be included in the board workbook, but will be limited in length.

To submit public comments visit http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=process.comments.

The meeting will be at the Egan Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage. It will also be open to the public and streamable on the Board of Fisheries website at www.boardoffisheries.adfg.alaska.gov.
