Hatcheries Planning
Regional Planning Teams

Salmon production in Alaska is divided into regions, designated by the commissioner, as described in law (AS 16.10.375). Regional Planning Teams (RPTs), made up of department personnel and representatives of the appropriate regional association, are responsible for developing, and amending as necessary, a comprehensive salmon plan for each region that includes provisions for both public and private nonprofit hatcheries. RPTs operate as described in regulation (5 AAC 40.300-40.370). In addition to comprehensive salmon plans, RPTs provide the commissioner with recommendations on new hatcheries and PNP hatchery permit alteration requests (PARs), and in some regions, may also review hatchery annual management plans. All RPT meetings are open to the public and public participation is encouraged.
