"An Act relating to sport fishing seasons and areas for persons under 16 years of age."

"...encourage healthy outdoor activity for Alaska's youth by expanding fishing access, especially in urban areas..."
- Rep. Samuels

 

House Bill 98 will encourage healthy outdoor activity for Alaska's youth by expanding fishing access, especially in urban areas. Fishing gives children an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate nature while getting fresh air and exercise. House Bill 98 will help to create more opportunities for Alaska's children to enjoy the sport of fishing.

House Bill 98 provides the Board of Fish with the authority to implement special fisheries for children under the age of 16. It will allow the board to manage fisheries with more flexibility. In turn, small fisheries could be implemented in areas where a fully open fishery is not practicable. The details of these specific fisheries will be left to the board's expertise.

A similar provision exists in statute for the Board of Game. It allows the board to establish age-specific youth hunts. House Bill 98 will grant the same type of authority to the Board of Fish.
