FAIRBANKS (AP) -- The Alaska Board of Fisheries has rescheduled a meeting in Cordova that was postponed earlier this month.
The meeting to consider changes involving the Copper River drainage and Prince William Sound is now set for Jan. 31 to Feb. 6 in Cordova.
The meeting had been postponed because one member of the board resigned and another was absent. John White of Anchorage recently resigned and Russell Nelson wasn't able to attend the meeting originally set for Dec. 8 to Dec. 15.
The board will take up changes to sport, commercial, personal-use and subsistence fishing in the area. Other issues include dipnetting at Chitina and king salmon fishing in the Gulkana and Klutina rivers.
The deadline for public comment on proposals has been extended to Jan. 6.
