Arctic Cisco Management and Research


Both commercial and subsistence fishers target Arctic cisco. The Commercial Fisheries Division of ADF&G manages these fisheries in Alaska. Subsistence surveys are conducted by both Commercial Fisheries and Subsistence divisions. There are no directed sport fisheries for Arctic cisco in Alaska.


ADF&G is not currently conducting any research on Arctic cisco. The Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans and consulting groups in Alaska have researched the movement of fish between the Mackenzie and the Colville rivers.
