(a) The purpose of this management plan is to provide the department with management guidelines for the sustained yield of salmon stocks in Subdistricts 2 and 3 in the Norton Sound District. The department shall manage, to the extent practicable, the commercial, sport, subsistence, and personal use fisheries in Subdistricts 2 and 3 to achieve escapement goals.
(b) The department shall manage salmon fisheries in the Subdistricts 2 and 3 as follows:
(1) in the commercial chum salmon fishery,
(A) the department shall manage the fisheries to achieve the following optimal escapement goals ranges:
(i) Kwiniuk River: 11,500 - 23,000 chum salmon; and
(ii) Tubutulik River: 9,200 - 18,400 chum salmon;
(B) the chum salmon harvest may not exceed 15,000 fish before the department's mid-July run assessment in Subdistrict 2;
(C) the fishery may occur only if the department projects that chum salmon escapement goals will be achieved and the harvestable surplus will more than meet subsistence needs;
(2) in the commercial pink salmon fishery, the fishery may occur only if subsistence needs are expected to be met and chum salmon escapement goals achieved;
(3) in the commercial coho salmon fishery, the fishery may occur only when the chum salmon escapement goals for the Norton Sound District index rivers specified in 5 AAC 04.358 are achieved or when the department determines that further restrictions would have no impact on achieving chum salmon escapement goals;
(4) the commissioner may not place restrictions on subsistence fishing for chum salmon by emergency order, unless all directed chum salmon commercial fishing has been closed and sport fishing has been appropriately restricted in the subdistrict as provided in 5 AAC 01.180 - 5 AAC 01.184.
