Editor's note: When 5 AAC 01.560 was originally filed effective 6/30/79, Register 70 (July 1979), the subsections were incorrectly designated, skipping the "(e)" designation.

At its November 8 - 20, 1992 meeting, the Board of Fisheries readopted 5 AAC 01.560(b) (1) and (b)(3) and (j) and (k) in their entirety without change, under ch. 1, SSSLA 1992 (the 1992 subsistence law), which repealed and reenacted AS 16.05.258 .
