The Kodiak Fisheries Work Group will hold a meeting tonight and discuss Gulf of Alaska Trawl Bycatch Management issues. Assemblywoman Chris Lynch said the goal of the meeting will be to draft recommendations for the North Pacific Fishery Management Council’s April meeting on bycatch management, specifically recommendations that will benefit the Kodiak Community.
On the agenda for tonight is a panel discussion featuring fishermen from various backgrounds and gear types who will outline their hopes for bycatch management and how certain decisions might affect different industries.
The meeting will also include three representatives from the North Pacific Fishery Management Council and the federal fisheries coordinator for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s commissioner’s office.
The meeting is open to the public, and the agenda is posted on the borough’s website. Public comments will be taken at the beginning and end of the meeting.
KMXT will modify its Monday evening programming to broadcast the meeting live from the borough assembly chambers, starting at 6 p.m.
