Yesterday Commerce Secretary Gary Locke officially approved the Arctic Fishery Management Plan recommended by the North Pacific Fishery Management Council.
Also yesterday, Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski held a Senate field hearing on the topic in Anchorage.
Whether or not you had the opportunity to attend that hearing, you might want to sign up for the International Arctic Fisheries Symposium, coming up in October.
This gathering is going to look at all aspects of Arctic stocks and management. It is critical that fishermen be represented in the mix of scientists, fishery managers, conservationists and representatives of non-profit organizations.
