State fisheries officials have issued a reminder of the April 10 deadline for proposal for changes in all fisheries, including Prince William Sound finfish and shellfish, including the Upper Copper and Upper Susitna rivers, and Southeast and Yakutat finfish and shellfish.

Proposals may be submitted online to boardoffisheries.adfg.alaska.gov, emailed to dfg.bof.comments@alaska.gov, mailed to ADF&G, Boards Support Section, P.O. Box 115526, Juneau, AK 99811-5526, or faxed to 907-465-6-94.

Due to current concerns about the spread of novel coronavirus, the public is asked to not hand deliver proposals to ADF&G offices.

Proposal forms are available at adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fisheriesboard.forms.

Additional information provided with the form, including tables, internet web links or charts will not be included in the proposal book.

The complete proposal form must contain a contact telephone number and addresses. Email addresses are appreciated. ADF&G asks that the individual’s or organization’s name be printed or typed.

Responsive proposals received by the deadline will be considered by the fisheries board during the October 2020 through March 2021 meeting schedule.
