Commercial Dive Fisheries
Southeast Alaska & Yakutat

The Southeast Alaska/Yakutat dive fisheries include sea cucumbers, red sea urchins, and geoducks. These fisheries are managed by area office management biologists and stock assessment and research is done by the dive fisheries research group. Most of these fisheries are opened and assessed on a rotational calendar.

The Southeast Alaska Regional Dive Fisheries Association (SARDFA) provides the department with some stock assessment funding and has three species committees which make recommendations to the department.
