(a) Since the beginning of significant commercial harvests of pink and chum salmon in Resurrection Bay, there have been some conflicts between recreational and commercial fishermen. The issues are the protection of coho and king salmon for the recreational fishery, and the management of surplus pink and chum salmon stocks in a manner that provides for a commercial fishery while minimizing the incidental catch of coho and king salmon.
(b) The commissioner shall, by emergency order,
(1) manage Resurrection Bay coho and king salmon stocks primarily for recreational use;
(2) manage the indigenous pink and chum salmon stocks primarily for commercial use, insofar as that harvest does not interfere in time or area with the recreational fishery;
(3) manage the commercial fishery in Resurrection Bay in a manner that does not interfere with the recreational fishery.
