The Alaska Board of Fisheries (BOF) begins their Statewide Finfish Meeting in Anchorage on March 10th. Among other proposals, they will be deliberating five which deal with reducing or eliminating personal use and/or subsistence fishing activities, primarily on the Kenai Peninsula. I’m not sure why the board accepted these out-of-cycle proposals which would be more properly debated during the Upper Cook Inlet meeting in the spring of 2024, after everyone directly affected has a chance to respond.

The pre-meeting written comment period has expired. You can still submit written comments following a specific set of standards during the meeting or you can sign-up to verbally testify in person before 11 am on March 10th, at the meeting. Details are on the BOF website.
