(3) By supplemental application, applicants may choose to have their economic dependence evaluated under the following point schedule as an alternative to points available under (1) of this subsection:

(A) Percentage of Income Derived From the Fishery and Reliance on Alternative Occupations. Points for income dependence and reliance on alternative occupations will be awarded for each year, 1977 - 1979, in which the applicant participated as an interim-use permit holder. A maximum of 25 points will be awarded based on an income dependence percentage, which is calculated by dividing the applicant's annual salmon hand troll fishing gross income earned as a gear operator by the sum of that annual catch value and the applicant's nonfishing occupational income, and multiplying the result by 100. Minimum percentages for income dependence are as follows:

    

    

Year Percentage Points 1977 30% 12 1978 30% 13 1979 30% 13

Applicants under the age of 18 years will be awarded income dependence points under this subsection only if they can demonstrate emancipation, or if they were not claimed as dependents for tax purposes by parents or guardians, in the years for which income dependence points are claimed.

(B) Investment in Vessel and Gear. A maximum of 5 points will be awarded an applicant for investment in vessel and gear, as follows:

(i) Ownership as of January 1, 1980, of a vessel used or to be used in the salmon hand troll fishery and registered in compliance with 5 AAC 39.120(g) (5) and 5 AAC 05.39.270(d) as a hand troll vessel, will result in the owner being awarded 5 points. For a vessel owned as of the qualification date, but not registered as a hand troll vessel in 1979, the owner may be awarded 5 points upon a demonstration that the vessel was registered by the applicant as a hand troll vessel in any year from 1980 through 1983.

(ii) Ownership of hand troll gear as of the qualification date of January 1, 1980 will result in 1 point if the gear consists of hand operated gurdys and 0 points if the gear consists of rod and reel.

(iii) If two or more eligible applicants share in the investment in vessel or gear, the commission will award points under (B) of this paragraph based on the ratio of the applicant's investment interest to the total investment interest of all the other eligible applicants. Points for shared investments will be carried to the second decimal point and rounded to the nearest whole number, 0.50 rounding off to the immediately lower whole number.
