How have sport and subsistence fisheries changed over time in coastal Alaska? Are fishers targeting different species than they were decades ago? Have their fishing locations shifted over time in response to regulations or changes in fish populations? University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers interviewed charter captains and subsistence fishers in Southeast and South-central Alaska to understand how fishing regulations, socioeconomic factors, and ecological changes have affected their fishing practices. In this talk, our research team will present results from Sitka and other coastal communities that highlight the effects of halibufit regulations on people’s fishing decisions, opportunities, and perceptions of resource health. Our results indicate that fishing regulations set for one species (halibut) may have broader effects on the ecosystem by influencing where people fish and what species they target. This study also shows the importance of incorporating fishers’ knowledge into management of sport and subsistence fisheries. The presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the audience.
