Regulations Set For Spring 2004
January 21, 2004
These regulations apply in all marine waters of Southeast Alaska unless otherwise announced. The nonresident annual limit of three fish also applies in all freshwaters between Cape Suckling and Cape Fairweather.
These regulations are based
on the 2003 preseason abundance index, determined by the Pacific
Salmon Commission's Chinook Technical Committee, as directed
by the Southeast Alaska king salmon management plan. Under
the plan, bag and possession limits and other measures for the
coming year are based on the prior year's abundance index until
the coming year's index is determined. The 2004 index is
expected by May 1, 2004. At that time, management measures
for the remainder of the year will be announced.
