BOF votes down proposal to change allocation criteria

Posted: Friday, March 22, 2019 9:13 am

At its Statewide Finfish meeting earlier this month, the Alaska Board of Fisheries voted down three proposals that stood to affect Kodiak fisheries. Chief among them was Proposal 171, which would have changed the criteria that are used to decide allocation for different user groups. The proposal failed in a 5-2 vote.

The proposal, which was submitted by the Kenai River Sportfishing Association, stated “Allocation decisions are often closely aligned with historical use of the resource; however, while historical use may be taken into consideration when reviewing and making an allocation decision, this criterion alone shall not be determinate.”
