(a) For each fishery for which a maximum number of entry permits has been established under 20 AAC 05.320, the commission will adopt regulations defining priority classifications in terms of a point system for ranking applicants for entry permits. These priority classifications will be based upon a reasonable balance of the hardship standards of degree of economic dependence upon the fishery and extent of past participation in the fishery. The commission will use the following classification system and the guidelines set out in 20 AAC 05.610 and 20 AAC 05.620, except for those fisheries where special circumstances are found to require modification of the classification system considering the number of applicants, the variance in their qualifications, the history of the fishery, and the purposes of AS 16.43.
(b) A point scale from 0 - 40 will be established, with 20 points assigned for each of the two hardship standards: (1) economic dependence and (2) past participation.
(c) The commission will assign an applicant to one of the 41 priority classifications designated by the numbers 0 through 40, based on the total points to which his qualifications as of the qualification date entitled him under 20 AAC 05.630. The higher the total number of points, the greater the degree of hardship the applicant would suffer by exclusion from the fishery.
(d) The commission will designate
(1) an upper range of priority classifications of those applicants who would suffer significant economic hardship by exclusion from the fishery, and therefore will receive entry permits as required by AS 16.43.270 (a); and
(2) a lower range of priority classifications of those applicants who would suffer only minor economic hardship by exclusion from the fishery, and an entry permit originally issued to them by the commission pursuant to AS 16.43.250 (c), may therefore have certain restrictions placed upon its transfer as required by AS 16.43.170 (c).
(e) The designations made in (d) of this section may leave a middle range of priority classifications that are not subject to either the significant or minor economic hardship provisions of AS 16.43.
