A typical Board Meeting

Advisory Committees provide a local forum on fish and wildlife issues. All Advisory Committee meetings are open to the public, and generally attended by members of the public, Fish & Game staff, and local residents who offer background and share information on agenda topics. Their purpose as established by the Joint Board of Fisheries and Game includes:

  • Developing regulatory proposals
  • Evaluating regulatory proposals and making recommendations to the appropriate board
  • Providing a local forum for fish and wildlife conservation and use, including matters relating to habitat
  • Consulting with individuals, organizations, and agencies

Under the Alaska Administrative Code, "A committee shall meet at least twice a year to remain active under 5 AAC 96.450. A committee may meet at times appropriate to the process described in 5 AAC 96.610, and at other times to formulate regulatory proposals, review and comment on proposals, and consider matters appropriate to the committee's functions under 5 AAC 96.050. A chairman or a majority of the full committee membership may call a regular meeting."
