ADF&G Announcement 10/16/20: The purpose of this harvest strategy is to lay the framework for a consistent and transparent in season and postseason approach to determine guideline harvest levels and close fisheries when warranted, while remaining consistent with the Board of Fisheries’ Policy on King and Tanner Crab Resource Management (90-04-FB, March, 1990) [5 AAC 34.080] and the Southeast Alaska Golden King Crab Management Plan [5 AAC 34.114].
The primary goal and objective of this harvest strategy is to improve and stabilize fishery performance using transparent and repeatable metrics (and their rationale) to evaluate stock health and measure performance for more consistent in season and postseason management.
The draft recommended SE AK golden king crab harvest strategy is available on our ADF&G website here: www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/fishing/PDFs/commercial/southeast/gkc_for_comments_v3_ao.pdf
