PETERSBURG-AK Moose antler rules, black bear harvests, martin trapping and sea otter populations are several of the topics up for discussion at this week’s meeting of the Southeast Alaska Regional Subsistence Advisory Council. The group is one of ten regional councils that make regulatory recommendations to the Federal Subsistence Board, which manages subsistence hunting and fishing on federal lands and waters in Alaska. The advisory councils meet each fall to talk about regional fishery issues and proposals. They meet again in the late winter-early spring to talk about wildlife. This week’s wildlife meeting is being held at Petersburg’s Alaska Native Brotherhood hall.
Matt Lichtenstein got a preview from Forest Service subsistence coordinator Robert Larson and Advisory Council member Mike Bangs of Petersburg.
