From a USFWS News Release:

The Southcentral Alaska Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Council's subcommittee on Kenai Peninsula subsistence fishery proposals will meet Friday and Saturday, Feb. 2-3, at the Kenai River Center in Soldotna. This meeting is open to the public and will begin at 1 p.m. on Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

The regional advisory council voted in December to form a subcommittee that will provide recommendations to the council on current Federal subsistence fishery proposals for Federal public waters within the Kenai, Kasilof and Swanson river drainages and Six Mile and Resurrection creek drainages. The subcommittee's work will focus on methods and means of harvest, harvest limits, and fishery seasons.

The following organizations and communities will be represented on the subcommittee:

* Salamatoff Tribe
* Ninilchik Tribe
* Kenaitze Tribe
* Kenai River Sportfishing Association
* Kenai River Professional Guides Association
* United Cook Inlet Drift Association
* Kenai Peninsula Fisherman's Association
* Community of Cooper Landing
* Community of Hope
* Community of Ninilchik

Two members of the Southcentral council will serve as nonvoting members of the subcommittee.

The council has requested that the subcommittee provide recommendations to the council prior to the council's March 13-16 meeting. The council will then develop recommendations on fishery proposals for the Federal Subsistence Board, prior to the Board's May 8-10 meeting.

Additional information on the Federal Subsistence Management Program can be found on the agency's website.
