Title: Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska-2023–24 and 2024–25 Subsistence Taking of Fish and Shellfish Regulations 

Working together, the Department of the Interior (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, and Bureau of Indian Affairs) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service biannually revise regulations for seasons, harvest limits, and methods and means related to taking of fish and shellfish for subsistence uses in Alaska on public lands. The regulatory process, which is administered by the Federal Subsistence Board, involves 10 Federal Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils whose periodic meetings provide a forum for input by rural residents with personal knowledge of local conditions and resource requirements. This process allows the public and rural residents to have a meaningful role in the subsistence management of fish and shellfish on public waters in Alaska and submit proposals to change subsistence regulations for Alaska public waters.
