The Alaska Board of Fisheries is accepting proposals for changes to personal use, sport, guided sport and commercial fishing regulations until April 10.
Proposed regulation changes are now being accepted for the Lower and Upper Cook Inlet finfish, statewide (except Southeast and Yakutat) King and Tanner crab management area.
Lower and Upper Cook Inlet finfish include all types of salmon, herring, trout, freshwater finfishes and groundfish. The board will consider proposals in the 2019-2020 meeting cycle.
Proposls should be submitted online at the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s website, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax to 907-465-6094 or via mail to PO Box 115526, Juneau AK 99811.
All of the proposals are reviewed prior to publication.
The Department of Fish and Game warns, in a press release, that emotionally charged language may detract from the substance of the proposal and “may draw opposition not germane to the elements of the proposal. Such language may be edited or deleted prior to publication.”
Pertinent proposals will be published in the proposal book and submitted to advisory committees and the public for review.
