Sitka- The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is announcing a correction in the map, included in the news releases dated January 7, 2019, detailing the 2019 Sitka/Juneau Area king salmon closures. The original map showed all of district 13C, including Hoonah Sound, closed to the retention of king salmon between April 1 and June 14. The area closed should have been identified as only the waters of 13C southeast of a line between Nismeni Pt. and a point on the Chichagof Island shoreline at 57°35.587' N. lat., 135°22.329' W. long. All other details remain correct. The corrected map is attached.
