Title 5 . Fish and Game
Chapter 21 . Transportation, Possession and Release of Live Fish; Aquatic Farming
Section 375. Bear Lake Management Plan

5 AAC 21.375. Bear Lake Management Plan

(a) Any restrictions, in board policies dated before the effective date of this section, on the maximum number of indigenous Bear Lake sockeye salmon spawners are rescinded. The department shall establish an escapement goal for Bear Lake sockeye salmon stocks and shall manage all contributing fisheries to meet this goal.

(b) Enhancement activities related to either indigenous Bear Lake sockeye salmon stocks or transplanted sockeye salmon stocks must consider the impact on continuing enhancement of Bear Lake coho salmon. It is the intent of the Board of Fisheries that

(1) any enhancement of sockeye salmon must not cause a net loss of coho salmon smolt production from Bear Lake;

(2) any enhancement of sockeye salmon in Bear Lake must maintain the early run timing of the indigenous stocks;

(3) the prime objective of any Bear Lake sockeye salmon enhancement must be to provide the opportunity for a commercially viable sockeye salmon fishery prosecuted with minimal conflict with the recreational fishery.

(c) In Resurrection Bay, the department shall manage the commercial harvest of the enhanced Bear Lake sockeye salmon harvestable surplus to achieve an allocation of 50 percent to the commercial seine fleet and 50 percent to the Trail Lakes Hatchery for cost recovery in Resurrection Bay. For the purposes of this subsection, Resurrection Bay consists of those waters in the Eastern District enclosed by a line from Aialik Cape at 59ΓΈ 42.33' N. lat., 149ΓΈ 31.50' W. long. to a point approximately one mile south of Aialik Cape at 59ΓΈ 41.33' N. lat., 149ΓΈ 31.50' W. long., then northeast to a point approximately one mile south of Cape Resurrection at 59ΓΈ 51.03' N. lat., 149ΓΈ 17' W. long., then north to a point on Cape Resurrection at 59ΓΈ 52.03' N. lat., 149ΓΈ 17' W. long.
