Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Working Group

The Kuskokwim River Salmon Management Working Group was formed in 1988 by the Alaska Board of Fisheries (BOF) in response to requests from stakeholders in the Kuskokwim Area who sought a more active role in the management of salmon fishery resources.

The Working Group is made up of 13 member seats representing elders, subsistence fishermen, processors, commercial fishermen, sport fishermen, member at large, federal subsistence regional advisory committees, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Agency members participate on a voluntary basis and receive no compensation. Participation in the Working Group process requires a great deal of time from its members and agency staff.

The relationship among Working Group members, research planners, project leaders, and policy makers is fostered, and these interactions are critical to the aim of the Working Group. This relationship ensures that participants remain up-to-date on new information and maintain their direct involvement in management of Kuskokwim River salmon fisheries.

Limited funding for Working Group meeting facilitation is provided by the USFWS Office of Subsistence Management and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
