The following chapters are linked to the state’s Alaska Administrative Code (AAC) database (in Folio). To return to Fish and Game you will have to use your browser’s BACK button/command.   The AAC database is updated on a quarterly basis by the Legislative Affairs Agency, and because of this, links can become invalid without our knowledge. Occasionally, you may receive a "could not connect to pipe" message. This may indicate a congestion or failure of their database connections. We do not have any control over their database site or programs and there is nothing we can do to directly remedy this situation for you. Generally, if you retry to connect in a few minutes, things will have returned to normal. If any of our links to that database, found on this page, should fail for other reasons or seem inaccurate, however, please feel free to contact us immediately at CF Publications.
