Creel surveys of the Juneau, Ketchikan, Sitka, and Petersburg marine sport fisheries for chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha were conducted during 1995. Estimates from these surveys were necessary to provide data for inseason management of the chinook salmon sport fishery in Southeast Alaska to meet an allocation determined by the Alaska Board of Fisheries. Dockside interviews of boat-parties completing trips were used to estimate angler effort for and total catch and harvest of chinook salmon. Harvest and total catches of other Pacific salmon and trout Oncorhynchus species, Pacific halibut Hippoglossus stenolepis, lingcod Ophiodon elongatus, rockfish Sebastes species, and Dolly Varden Salvelinus malma were also estimated. In addition, harvests of crab and shrimp were estimated in Ketchikan and Petersburg; while harvest of crab was estimated in Juneau. The contributions of hatchery chinook salmon and coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch to these sport fisheries were estimated from coded wire tag recovery information. Coded wire tag sampling programs conducted at Wrangell and Craig also provided hatchery contribution estimates. Scale samples and lengths were taken from chinook salmon for age composition and length-at-age estimates in all fisheries. Lengths of Pacific halibut were taken to estimate total round weight of the harvest from existing length-weight relationships. The estimated harvest of chinook salmon was 26,977 (SE = 524), and the estimated catch was 63,493 (SE = 5,227) in the boat sport fisheries monitored. Harvests of chinook salmon were lower than the long-term average in the Ketchikan fishery, but about average in the Juneau fishery. Hatcheries in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon produced about 50% of the monitored chinook salmon harvest, and 37% of the total harvest was of Alaska hatchery origin. In Juneau hatcheries produced about 46% of the chinook salmon harvest, and Southeast Alaska hatcheries contributed 45% of the total harvest. In Ketchikan 25% of the harvest was of hatchery origin, and the percentage of Alaska hatchery chinook salmon harvested was estimated to be 21% of the harvest. The estimated Alaska hatchery contribution of chinook salmon was 36% in Sitka and 63% in Petersburg, and coded wire tag sampling in Craig and Wrangell revealed that chinook salmon from Alaska hatcheries contributed about 4% and 15%, respectively, of the harvest in those locations. An estimated 46,352 (SE = 3,058) coho salmon, 34,638 (SE = 3,701) pink salmon Oncorhynchus gorbuscha, 43,788 (SE = 1,901) Pacific halibut, and 18,684 (SE = 1,358) rockfish were also harvested in the sampled marine boat fisheries. Hatcheries produced 7% and 38%, respectively, of the coho harvest in Juneau and Ketchikan. The Pacific halibut harvest of 9,252 (SE = 762) in Juneau was below the long-term average, and the Ketchikan harvest of 19,675 (SE = 1,669) was the highest recorded. Shellfish effort was above average in the Juneau and Ketchikan fisheries, and Dungeness crab harvest was above average in Juneau and the highest recorded in Ketchikan.

NMFS implements regulations to limit the harvest of Pacific halibut by guided sport charter vessel anglers in International Pacific Halibut Commission Area 2C of Southeast Alaska to the guideline harvest level (GHL) of , lb ( mt). The intended effect of this action is to reduce the. We work with others to study, manage, and conserve seabirds, waterfowl, raptors, shorebirds, landbirds, and loons/grebes in Alaska. The work we do within our Division of Migratory Bird Management is guided by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and international treaties. .
Moreover, in recent years the State of Alaska has tightened regulations governing the harvest of other species of fish targeted by sport anglers. These tighter restrictions can be assumed to Start Printed Page reduce the attractiveness of a Southeast Alaska fishing trip and to reduce the demand for guided charters. The adverse impact of. Rotating the harvest of natural resources is a management strategy that humans have used on land for centuries, but it is less commonly applied to marine resources. Marine animals, such as sea cucumbers, scallops, and abalone, may be particularly suited for this form of management. Although highly important to many communities worldwide, they are often severely overexploited, underlining Cited by:
Residents of Southeast Alaska and their family and friends are the primary unguided anglers, while non-resident tourists are the main clients for guided fishing on charter vessels. Sport harvest data collected by ADF&G show that the through average guided sport harvest of halibut has been million lb ( mt) per year and the. Management strategy evaluation (MSE) is widely used in fisheries as a decision support tool for evaluating the consequences of a range of management strategies, while acknowledging system y, it involves developing a model to describe the fishery, with a focus on identification and modeling of uncertainties as well as portraying different representations of resource dynamics ().Cited by:

As seen in the subsistence harvest of beluga whales in Cook Inlet, Alaska, inaccuracies in reported harvest numbers may occur when hunters shoot an animal but are unable to recover the body, a phenomenon called “struck and loss” (Mahoney and Shelden ).
