The State of Alaska is not managing salmon in compliance with the Magnuson Stevens Act and 10 National Standards

In UCIDA’s ongoing effort to engage the North Pacific Management Council in restoring scientific salmon management to Cook Inlet, it became apparent that the Council was not aware of the State of Alaska’s actual management practices.

As a result, we developed a document to connect the dots between:

  • what the federal law requires for salmon management versus what the state of Alaska is actually doing; and
  • what the ADF&G claims they are doing versus what their numbers show they are doing.

We also took the opportunity to point out additional flaws in their process of developing a Fishery Management Plan (FMP) for Cook Inlet. This document was sent to the Council in May of 2020.
