The Aleutians East Borough (AEB) would like to remind Area M fishermen that the Alaska Board of Fisheries (BOF) is scheduled to hear testimony on multiple proposals impacting the Alaska Peninsula and Aleutian Islands finfish. The public hearing will take place Feb. 2 - 6, 2010 at the Egan Civic & Convention Center.
The AEB is renting space at the Egan (Space #14, lower level) for fishermen to gather and seek advice from the Borough's fish experts (AEB Resource Director Beth Stewart and Borough Fisheries Consultant Sam Cotten) on testimony that will be presented to the BOF.
Those unable to attend the hearing in Anchorage can listen to audio from the BOF public hearing. It will be streamed live via the Board's Web site: http://www.boards.adfg.state.ak.us/fishinfo/index.php .
