Subsistence and personal use harvest of salmon in Alaska, 1960-2012

Alaska Department Of Fish
Subsistence fishing is important for the economies and cultures of many families and communities in Alaska. Subsistence uses of wild resources exist alongside other important uses of fish and game in Alaska and are especially important for many rural families who depend on subsistence use for nutrition and traditional cultural practices. Subsistence use is defined as the noncommercial, customary harvest and processing of wild resources for food, raw materials, and other traditional uses. These customs...

Alaska fisheries and wildlife advisory committees by region and recent activity

Taylor Brelsford & Steve Langdon
Advisory Committees (AC) are local groups that meet to discuss fish and wildlife issues, provide a local forum for those issues, and make recommendations to the Alaska boards of fisheries and game. Their purpose as established by the Joint Boards of Fisheries and Game includes developing regulatory proposals, evaluating regulatory proposals and making recommendations to the appropriate board, providing a local forum for fish and wildlife conservation and use, and consulting with individuals, organizations, and...

Commercial salmon harvest data, 1882-2016

Alaska Department Of Fish
Commercial harvest data of salmon are available from the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission, however, depending on the resolution of these data, some years in some fisheries are confidential to protect the identity of the fishers and processors working in that fishery. In some cases, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADFG) is granted a waiver by those fishers and processors to published annual data at the commercial fishing area level in annual reports. In...

Compiled age, sex, and length data for Alaskan salmon, 1922-2017

Jeanette Clark, Rich Brenner & Bert Lewis
Age, sex and length (ASL) data provide population dynamics information that can indicate how population trends occur and may be changing. These data can help researchers estimate population growth rates, age-class distribution, and population demographics. Knowing population demographics, growth rates and trends is particularly valuable to fisheries managers who must perform population assessments to inform management decisions. These data are therefore important in valuable fisheries like the salmon fisheries of Alaska. This dataset includes age,...
