AS 16.43.010. Purpose and Findings of Fact.
- (a) It is the purpose of this chapter to promote the conservation and the sustained yield management of Alaska's fishery
resource and the economic health and stability of commercial fishing in Alaska by regulating and controlling entry of
participants and vessels into the commercial fisheries in the public interest and without unjust discrimination.
- (b) The legislature finds that commercial fishing for fishery resources has reached levels of participation, on both a
statewide and an area basis, that have impaired or threaten to impair the economic welfare of the fisheries of the
state, the overall efficiency of the harvest, and the sustained yield management of the fishery resource.
