The Alaska Board of Fisheries meets at the Egan Center July 17th to decide six emergency petitions. Three of these petitions propose to shut down the South Alaska Peninsula salmon fisheries. You can read all of the petitions including from the BBNA, the Chignik AC and the Chignik Regional Aquaculture Association that would close down the Area M South Peninsula fisheries, at this link.
You can submit comments at the Board of Fish website by clicking the 'Comment on Emergency petitions' button and writing your comment to the Board. The deadline to submit comments for the emergency petitions meeting has been extended until July 16th. There will be no opportunity for public comment at the July 17th meeting. You can find the fifth revised meeting notice here.
There is a regular Board meeting scheduled in February to discuss Chignik and South Peninsula salmon fisheries. The Board should deny the BBNA and Chignik petitions and address the concerns at the upcoming February 2019 Board meeting.
