Fish board emergency meeting slated

The Alaska Board of Fisheries will meet by teleconference on Thursday at 8:30 a.m. to consider a petition concerning Cook Inlet setnet closure. The petition requests that setnet fishing in the East Forelands statistical area of Cook Inlet be opened to help keep the Kenai River late-run sockeye salmon escapement within the range set by regulation.   

The board will not take public testimony during the teleconference. The Kenai Legislative Information Office, 145 Main Street Loop, Suite 217 in Kenai will be a listen-only teleconference site. The audio of the teleconference is intended to be streamed live online at http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fisheriesboard.main.  

The agenda and other meeting documents will be available prior to the meeting on the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Board of Fisheries, meeting information webpage at: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm?adfg=fisheriesboard.meetinginfo.
