A regional advisory council that looks at subsistence issues in Southeast is meeting in Petersburg Tuesday through Thursday.

The Southeast Alaska Subsistence Regional Advisory Council is one of ten regional advisory councils in the state. The Southeast group covers all of the Tongass and Chugach Forests and the parts of Wrangell St. Elias National Park that drain into the Gulf of Alaska. It also includes the Preserve for Glacier Bay National Park.

On the even years the group talks about fish issues and on the odd years, wildlife issues. So, this week they will be covering fish proposals.

The three day meeting will help advise the statewide subsistence council which will meet in Anchorage in January.

Robert Larson of Petersburg is the coordinator for the advisory council. He spoke with Angela Denning about a few topics that the council will be covering at the meeting.

The council is meeting Tuesday through Thursday at the ANB-ANS hall. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday. It is open to the public.
