Broad Whitefish Management and Research
Currently, no agency manages broad whitefish in Alaska. Commercial havest is tracked, but not regulated. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game are together working on a broad whitefish management plan.
Some research has been completed by Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service conducted numerous studies on the Broad whitefish in Alaska. The U. S. Geological Survey also studied broad whitefish on the Arctic Coastal Plain. Most of the studies gathered baseline data. Still, very little is known about the broad whitefishes’ movements, reproduction, or population status in much of the State.
