Moose Species Management Reports and Plans
Report Period: 1 July 2015–30 June 2020
Plan Period: 1 July 2020–30 June 2025

Species management report and plan documents provide information about species that are hunted or trapped and management actions, goals, and recommendations for those species. Detailed information is prepared for each species every five years by the area management biologists for game management units in their areas. Reports are not produced for species that are not managed for hunting or trapping or for areas where there is no current or anticipated activity. Unit reports are reviewed and approved for publication by regional management coordinators. Any information taken from these reports should be cited with credit given to authors and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. Suggested citations are included in each of the reports.

These reports provide a record of survey and inventory management activities for moose for the five regulatory years 2015–2019, and plans for the five regulatory years 2020–2024. A regulatory year (RY) begins 1 July and ends 30 June (e.g., RY15 = 1 July 2015–30 June 2016). These reports are produced primarily to provide agency staff with data and analysis to help guide and record the agency's own efforts, but are also provided to the public to inform it of wildlife management activities. In 2016 the Alaska Department of Fish and Game's Division of Wildlife Conservation launched this new type of five-year report to more efficiently report on trends and to describe potential changes in data collection activities over the next five years. It replaced the moose management species report type that was previously produced every two years.

These unit reports are published individually, so although the period covered remains the same for all reports, the year published may differ.
