Southeast Alaska Chinook Salmon Fishery Mitigation Program
Public Involvement Opportunities - 2012-2014 Program

Opportunities were provided for public input as the 2012-2014 Chinook Fishery Mitigation Program was developed. Comments were received on the types of projects that would mitigate the economic impacts of the 15% reduction in Chinook harvest levels and the allocation of funds to the various program components. Written comments received were made available to the Stakeholder Panel and opportunities for public comment were provided at each panel meeting (January 19, May 2-3, and May 15, 2012).

A Stakeholder Panel meeting will be held in Juneau on October 8, 2013 to review the status of the Chinook Mitigation Program and provide any additional recommendations for allocation of the remaining fund balance. All funds must be utilized no later than April 30, 2015.
