Alaska Board of Fisheries members will hold a teleconference on Sept. 16 from 2:30-4:30 p.m. to consider their 2020/2021 regulatory meeting schedule in light of the global novel coronavirus pandemic.

During this non-regulatory meeting no oral public testimony will be taken.  A live audio stream of the meeting is intended to be available on the board’s website and can be accessed at www.boardoffisheries.adfg.alaska.gov.  Audio-only teleconference sites will not be provided given the need to social distance and avoid large gatherings.

Meeting materials will be posted online at https://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fisheriesboard.meetinginfo&date=09-16-2020&meeting=tele
