Upcoming Board of Fish Meeting: Something for Every State-Waters Fisherman
By Ernie Weiss, AEB Natural Resources Director
Next week, the Alaska Board of Fisheries will convene for the last meeting of the 2014/2015 cycle, the only board meeting this cycle to be held in Anchorage. Each end-of-cycle meeting typically covers issues that aren’t discussed at other topic specific meetings and proposals considered out of cycle.
