Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska, Subpart C and Subpart D-2005-06 Subsistence Taking of Fish and Wildlife Regulations
This final rule establishes regulations for seasons, harvest limits, methods, and means related to taking of wildlife for subsistence uses in Alaska during the 2005-06 regulatory year. The rulemaking is necessary because the regulations governing the subsistence harvest of wildlife in Alaska are subject to an annual public review cycle. This rulemaking replaces the wildlife regulations that expire on June 30, 2005. This rule also amends the regulations that establish which Alaska residents are eligible to take specific species for subsistence uses.
Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska, Subpart D; Seasonal Adjustments-Copper and Stikine Rivers
This provides notice of the Federal Subsistence Board's in- season management actions to protect sockeye salmon escapement in the Copper River, while still providing for a subsistence harvest opportunity and to provide for a more efficient harvest method for chinook salmon in the Stikine River. The revised fishing schedule for the Chitina Subdistrict of the Copper River and net mesh size revision will provide an exception to the Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska, published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2005. Those regulations established seasons, harvest limits, methods, and means relating to the taking of fish and shellfish for subsistence uses during the 2005 regulatory year.
