Alaska Department of Fish and Game officials said today there's new online system for distributing and subscribing to news releases for commercial fishery openings, closings, fishing areas, times, and non-regulatory updates about specific fisheries. This system will also allow users to find announcements about subsistence fisheries and those personal use fisheries managed by the Division of Commercial Fisheries.

From now until May 30, you may preview the new system and subscribe to news releases for specific fisheries. The subscriptions will be activated with the new system on May 31.

During the preview period, there will be a limited number of news releases posted to the new system. Starting on May 31, all fishery news releases and announcements will be available in the new system and subscribers will automatically receive their news releases and announcements via email.

The new system, instructions for use, and subscription sign up is available at:

You may subscribe to news releases and announcements of interest to you by going to the preview system and clicking on the "Subscribe to News Releases" button in the lower right corner.
