ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 285
I, Bill Walker, Governor of the State of Alaska, under the authority of Article III, Sections 1 and 24, Constitution of the State
of Alaska, revoke Administrative Order No. 279 and make the following findings and order:
On February 16, 2016, I ordered that the administrative and research functions of the Alaska Commercial
Fisheries Entry Commission (Commission) were to be transferred to the Department of Fish and Game (Department) under Administrative Order No. 279.
The objective of Administrative Order No. 279 was to streamline certain administrative functions of the two agencies and identify cost-saving
measures, while continuing to provide appropriate support to the commercial fishing industry in state and to the Commission. After consulting
with a number of stakeholders, I have decided that the objectives of Administrative Order No. 279 can be achieved in other ways; therefore,
Administrative Order No. 279 is revoked. I continue to encourage and promote cooperative management between the department and the commission
as to their respective administrative functions.
Administrative Order No. 279 is revoked.
Administrative Order No. 60 remains in effect.
This Order takes effect immediately.
DATED at Juneau, Alaska, this 2nd day of May 2017
