Call for Proposals to Change Federal Subsistence Fish and Shellfish Regulations
Federal regulations for the subsistence harvest of fish and shellfish for the 2015-2017 regulatory
years (April 1, 2015-March 31, 2017).
The Board will consider proposals to change Federal fishing seasons, harvest limits, methods of
harvest, and customary and traditional use determinations. The Board will also accept proposals
for individual customary and traditional use determinations from residents of national park and
national monument resident zone communities, or those who already hold a Section 13.440
subsistence use permit.
Federal public lands include national wildlife refuges; national parks, monuments and preserves;
national forests; national wild and scenic rivers; and national conservation and recreation areas.
Federal public lands also include Bureau of Land Management areas that are not part of the
national conservation system. Federal subsistence regulations do not apply on State of Alaska
lands, private lands, military lands, Native allotments, or Federal lands selected by the State of
Alaska or Native corporations. READ MORE
