- Define the problem: An objective analysis of the trends in fishing access privileges held by Alaskans. Is this a state or federal issue?
- Is it statewide or regional? Outline legal and regulatory constraints, financial constraints, and other roadblocks.
- Identify possible solutions: What outcome(s) do we want? Lessons learned from across the world. Legal, regulatory, financial and other potential solutions.
- Develop potential pathways to achieve outcomes: at legislative level, at regulatory level, municipal or tribal level, and business entrepreneurship or financing level.
The workshop is designed for diverse representatives from Alaska’s fishing associations and communities, Alaska Native organizations and tribes, state and federal regulators, legal advisors, academics and other policy makers.
