The Board of Fisheries meets four to six times per year in communities around the state to consider proposed changes to fisheries regulations. The Board of Fisheries' main role is to conserve and develop the fishery resources of the state. This involves setting seasons, bag limits, methods and means for the state's fisheries, and it also involves setting policy and direction for the management of the state's fishery resources. The Board is charged with making allocative decisions, and the Department of Fish and Game is responsible for management based on those decisions.

In February 2020, the Board will meet in Anchorage to revisit regulations for Upper Cook Inlet.

KRSA has submitted seven proposals, and supports numerous other proposals, which are intended to:

  • Allow more salmon to return to Upper Cook Inlet rivers and streams;
  • Share the work of conservation among all users;
  • Strengthen the Conservation Corridor on Cook Inlet; and,
  • Provide greater opportunity for personal use fisheries - particularly in the Mat-Su.

You can view all of KRSA's proposals here.

Comments submitted using this site will be emailed to the board, and the information you provide will become part of the public record.
