Board of Fisheries
Long Term Meeting Cycle
The board meeting cycle is three years long. The meetings generally occur from October through March. The board considers changes to regulations on a region-based schedule. All fisheries are considered when the regional area, species, or statewide regulations are before the board. The fisheries, finfish and shellfish, include subsistence, sport, guided sport, personal use, and commercial. Emergency petitions and agenda change request procedures are available for the board to consider out-of-cycle requests.
The proposal deadline is April 10 every year. If April 10 falls on a weekend, the proposal deadline is the Friday preceding that weekend.
