Juneau Update: Fisheries bills on the move

Posted: Monday, April 17, 2017 9:00 am

HB 199, “The Wild Salmon Legacy Act,” is a bill I introduced that modernizes Alaska’s fish habitat protection and permitting law, which hasn’t been updated since statehood. 

Among other provisions, the bill creates a rebuttable presumption that all waters in Alaska are anadromous (waters in which fish migrate from salt water to spawn in fresh water) and included in the Anadromous Waters Catalog until proven otherwise.
