Hatcheries Planning
Regional Planning Teams

Salmon fishery enhancement planning in Alaska is described in law (AS 16.10.375) and is the responsibility of Regional Planning Teams (RPTs). RPTs operate as described in regulation (5 AAC 40.300-370) and prepare comprehensive salmon fishery enhancement plans, provide recommendations on PNP hatchery permit alterations and applications for new hatcheries, and may also review hatchery annual management plans. RPTs are composed of representatives from regional aquaculture associations and ADF&G staff. All RPT meetings are open to the public and public participation is encouraged.
