AS 16.43.855. Assessment of Points.

(a) Notice of each assessment of points shall be given to the permit holder. Notice shall also be given to the permit holder before the expiration of a suspension of commercial salmon fishing privileges under AS 16.43.850 (d) that subsequent violations of commercial fishing laws in the salmon fishery may result in further suspensions of the permit. The notice may be given by first class mail.

(b) The time periods provided for in AS 16.43.850 for the accumulation of points shall be based on the date of conviction, either on a plea of guilty, nolo contendere, or a forfeiture of bail or collateral, or as a result of a trial, for violation of a commercial salmon fishing law.

(c) The assessment of points against a permit holder by the commission under AS 16.43.850 - 16.43.895 is in addition to, and not in substitution for, other provisions of this title and is not a substitute for any penalty imposed by a court.

(d) If points are assessed against a permit holder who holds a commercial fishing permit for a salmon fishery under an emergency transfer approved by the commission under AS 16.43.180 , the same number of points shall also be assessed against the transferor of the permit. Points assessed against the transferor of the permit under this subsection shall be included in calculations made under AS 16.43.850(d).
