Temporary Special Action Request FSA22-05, submitted by the Office of Subsistence Management, asks the Board to temporarily enact the Lower Copper River subsistence salmon fishery recently adopted by the Board and to delegate authority to the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve Superintendent to implement the fishery.  This administrative action is necessary because the newly adopted regulations will not be published in the Federal Register in time for the start of this year’s fishery.  The temporary special action and delegation of authority would expire upon publication of the regulations in the Federal Register.
