The Board of Fisheries applies various statutes and policies when considering fisheries allocations and when addressing salmon proposals. When addressing proposals affecting subsistence uses, the board provides for a reasonable opportunity for subsistence consistent with AS 16.05.258 and 5 AAC 99.010(b). When addressing allocations among commercial, sport, guided sport, and/or personal use fisheries, the board applies its Allocation Criteria (AS 16.05.251(e)). When addressing salmon fisheries it applies its Mixed Stock Salmon Policy (5 AAC 39.220) and its Sustainable Salmon Fisheries Policy (5 AAC 39.222). You may wish to review these statutes and policies as you prepare comments for the board.
