It’s spring, and fishery managers want to hear from Kuskokwim River subsistence fishermen and fisherwomen about their concerns for the coming fishing season.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Kuskokwim River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission, and Alaska Department of Fish and Game are hosting a virtual listening session on April 22 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. They want to hear concerns and questions about the fishing season, and how subsistence activities are being affected. They also want ideas from the public about how managers can do better.

Participants will be able to speak in the order they join the session, with deference given to Elders. Participants will be given five minutes to talk, except Elders, who will be given 10 minutes. Yup’ik translators will be available.

The conversation will be held over Zoom. To join the session using video:
