Title 5 . Fish and Game
Chapter 27 . Transportation, Possession and Release of Live Fish; Aquatic Farming
Section 10. Application of regulations

5 AAC 27.010. Application of regulations

(a) Unless otherwise specified in this chapter, the regulations in this chapter that apply to a herring registration area also apply to the waters of the exclusive economic zone that are adjacent to the herring registration area.

(b) The commissioner may suspend the application of the regulations in this chapter that apply to a herring registration area to all or a portion of the waters of the exclusive economic zone that are adjacent to a herring registration area if the commissioner finds that

(1) application of the regulation fails to facilitate enforcement of regulations that apply to the registration area;

(2) application of the regulation fails to protect or conserve herring inhabiting territorial waters of Alaska; or

(3) the state has an insufficient interest in the herring that inhabit the waters of the adjacent exclusive economic zone to warrant extending the state's jurisdiction to those waters.

(c) For the purposes of this section, "exclusive economic zone" means all the waters adjacent to a herring registration area and seaward to a boundary line drawn in such a manner that each point on the line is 200 nautical miles from the baseline from which the territorial sea is measured.
