Summary

Alaska produces more than half the fish caught in U.S. waters. A warming Arctic, reduced sea ice, changing fisheries biomass, and increasing activity in the Arctic has implications for current and existing fisheries in the Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort seas.

This session will outline federal and state fisheries policies and management approaches as well as at sea and community based fisheries perspectives.

Speakers:

  • Steve MacLean, Arctic Fishery Management Plan Coordinator - North Pacific Fishery Management Council
  • TBA, Alaska Department of Fish and Game
  • Stephanie Madsen, Executive Director - At-Sea Processors Association
  • Simon Kinneen, Vice President / Ouota & Acquisions Manager - Norton Sound Economic Development Corporation
