Alaska Department of Fish and Game

Management and Research


The Alaska Department of Fish and Game maintains active and comprehensive management and research programs to ensure fish and wildlife populations are "utilized, developed, and maintained on the sustained yield principle,” in accordance with Alaska’s Constitution.

Management and research of fish and wildlife is carried out by five divisions in the department: Commercial Fisheries, Sport Fish, Subsistence, Habitat, and Wildlife Conservation. We also partner with Alaska tribes; state, federal, and municipal agencies; and other organizations to conduct research, monitoring, permitting, and access for resource use and development.
