Alaska Board of Fisheries to Meet in Kodiak, January 7–10, 2014 on Kodiak Finfish


The Alaska Board of Fisheries (board) will meet January 7–10, 2014, at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center, 236 Rezanof Drive, Kodiak, Alaska. During this four-day public meeting, the board will meet to consider 19 proposals regarding the Kodiak region submitted by the general public, fishing organizations, local Fish and Game Advisory Committees, and the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. This meeting was previously noticed to run from January 7­–11, 2014, but due to a lower than anticipated number of proposals it will be reduced by one day.


In addition to submitting written public comments, the board also invites members of the public to give oral public testimony during the meeting beginning January 7. Any person intending to testify must sign up at the meeting site at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center in Kodiak. The tentative deadline for signing up will be at 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 7. Public testimony will continue until members of the public who have signed up before the deadline and who are present have been given an opportunity to testify.


All portions of the meeting are open to the public and a live audio stream is intended to be available on the Board of Fisheries’ website at www.boardoffisheries.adfg.alaska.gov. Documents submitted to the board are intended to be posted online throughout the meeting. Copies of advanced meeting materials including the agenda and roadmap can be obtained by contacting Boards Support Section at 907-465-4110 or viewed online at: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fisheriesboard.meetinginfo.


The board encourages the public to submit written comments on specific proposals and is accepting on time public comment until December 23. After December 23, written public comments are limited to 10 single-sided or 5 double-sided pages in length from any one individual or group will be accepted as a record copy (RC), but will not be inserted in board member workbooks until the beginning of the meeting, and will only be accepted until the board begins deliberation of proposals.


Once deliberation of proposals begin at a board meeting, the board will ONLY accept written public comments that are not more than five single-sided pages, or the equivalent double-sided pages, unless specific information is requested by the board that requires more pages than allowed under this standard. See http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=process.comments for details on public comment.


During the meeting, written public comments from any one individual or group may be submitted by hand delivery at any time if 27 copies are provided. As a practical matter, comments submitted after the board begins deliberations on relevant proposals are likely to receive less consideration than comments submitted earlier. Individuals not in attendance can submit written comments by fax to (907) 465-6094.
