ALL Bristol Bay Resident Drift Fishers! Watch for this survey in the mail!
Alaska Survey Research is conducting a survey for BBEDC to see how many residents chill their fish, how they chill their fish and what district they predominately fish in. Recently, two seafood processors have indicated they will no longer buy "dry" salmon from drift boats by 2018. All of this information is crucial to assess our capabilities of providing meaningful services and prepare our local fleet during this transition. If you have received this survey in the mail, please fill it out and send back (postage is already affixed) as soon as possible. All of the information is kept confidential and will only take a couple of minutes to complete. Feel free to contact Gary Cline at 842-4370 if you have questions.
Effective Immediately! BBEDC Residency Policy has been Revised
At the September 2015 BBEDC Board of Director's meeting in Dillingham, the board voted to revise the BBEDC Residency Policy to include a change in the number of days a resident can be gone from a CDQ community and still remain eligible for BBEDC programs and services. The allowable absence time frame was reduced from 90 consecutive days per year to 60 consecutive days per year. As before, there are excusable absences allowed for longer periods of time. Make sure you fill out the most recent form (9/2015) when submitting your residency form with any application. Please review the updated BBEDC Affidavit of Residency Form for more information or call 842-4370.
