More than 40 proposals — covering topics from brown bear tag fees to the length of commercial salmon fishing seasons — were discussed by the Northern Norton Sound Advisory Committee earlier this week. Their recommendations now go to the Alaska Board of Fish and the Alaska Board of Game for final determination.
During the regional AC’s latest meeting on Monday, one lone proposal related to wildlife was on the agenda – a request to continue brown bear tag fee exemptions for residents in the region. These brown bear tags are metal locking devices put on the bear’s hide itself, which is not the same as a permit.
