Alaska Department of Fish and Game officials are asking the public to use the telephone or online resources for fishery registrations, permitting and other commercial fishery inquiries rather than visiting their offices in person.

It’s the agency’s effort to minimize the transmission of novel coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19.
