Title 5 . Fish and Game
Chapter 1 . Transportation, Possession and Release of Live Fish; Aquatic Farming
Section 190. Subdistrict 1 of the Norton Sound District Chum Salmon Management Plan

5 AAC 01.190. Subdistrict 1 of the Norton Sound District Chum Salmon Management Plan

The purpose of this management plan is to provide the department with conservative management guidelines for the sustained yield of chum salmon stocks in Subdistrict 1 of the Norton Sound District. The department shall manage Subdistrict 1 to achieve optimal escapement goals for chum salmon spawning streams and to restore chum salmon abundance so that a Tier II subsistence fishery will not be necessary. The department shall manage chum salmon as follows:

(1) commercial fishing for chum salmon is closed and will be reopened only after,

(A) the harvestable surplus of chum salmon has met Tier I subsistence needs for four consecutive years; and

(B) the department has proposed to the Board of Fisheries and the board has adopted an abundance-based management plan supported by inseason enumerator counts of abundance;

(2) in the subsistence fishery,

(A) subsistence chum salmon fishing will be opened and closed by emergency order on a stream-by-stream basis, to be determined by the department, when chum salmon stocks are abundant enough to provide for optimal escapement goals and a harvestable surplus;

(B) a subsistence fishing permit under 5 AAC 01.180 is required and will be issued to a household; the permit will identify the body of water to be fished, the annual limit for each salmon species, and the allowable gear;

(C) repealed 5/19/2004.
