Board of Fish to discuss Lower Cook Inlet proposal in Seward

The meeting will be held from Dec. 10 to 13 at AVTEC.

The Board of Fisheries will meet in Seward in December to discuss lower Cook Inlet finfish.

The meeting will be held from Dec. 10 to 13 at the Alaska Vocational Technical Center’s Student Service Center (AVTEC). The board will consider 47 proposals pertaining to sport, personal use and subsistence and commercial fishing in the lower Cook Inlet.

Each of the 47 proposals on the table have been submitted by the Fish and Game, Fish and Game Advisory Committees, local fishing organizations or the general public.

The meetings are open to the public and will begin with a training session at 12:10 p.m. on Dec. 10 on how to navigate the board process.

The public is also invited to give testimony during the meeting. Interested parties must sign up by Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. at the AVTEC location. Written comments submitted before Nov. 25 will be included in the board’s workbook for the meeting. Comments submitted after Nov. 25 are recorded as copies, will be given to board members and are accepted throughout the meeting. After Nov. 25 comments are limited to five double-sided pages, or 10 single pages.

The board notes that “as a practical matter” comments submitted after the board begins deliberations on relevant proposals are likely to receive less consideration than comments submitted earlier. Individuals not in attendance can submit written comments by fax to 907-465-6094.

AVTEC is located at 514 4th Ave. in Seward. For more information visit adfg.alaska.gov.
