Title VIII required the creation of Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils to enable rural residents to have a meaningful role in Federal subsistence management. The Secretaries of the Interior and Agriculture subsequently established the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The Program is a multi-agency effort that includes the Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs, and the USDA Forest Service. These agencies manage the Federal public lands where subsistence activities take place, including waters running through or next to Federal public lands and limited marine jurisdiction. The Secretaries delegated management of authority for subsistence uses in Alaska to the Federal Subsistence Board, which is comprised of the regional directors of the five Federal public lands managers in Alaska and a representative appointed by the Secretaries to serve as Chair. The Board is the decisionmaking body that oversees the Federal Subsistence Management Program. The ten Subsistence Regional Advisory Councils provide recommendations and information to the Board, review policies and management plans, provide a public forum, develop regulatory proposals for subsistence use of fish and wildlife, evaluate current and anticipated subsistence needs, and perform other duties required by the Board. The Councils make recommendations to the Board regarding proposed changes to fish and wildlife regulations; management plans; policies, standards, and guidelines; determinations of rural status; subsistence use allocation and other matters related to subsistence take of fish and wildlife. The Councils meet at least twice a year. Council chairs attend at least two Board meetings a year to present the recommendations of their Councils and provide knowledge and advice to the Board. d9b79ed8-1db5-40c9-9930-c704c0008635 Recommandations Not Available 5819ceb3-9c03-4131-92e2-4d1645a2dcba Make, Accept, Implement a6029dea-2d41-412c-b9ff-757b5756d422 3ca89493-c00e-4cbb-a0be-51d8470575f8 Recommendations Made Number Bristol Bay Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Department of the Interior Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 In March 2011, the Council recommended to the Federal Subsistence Board that they review wildlife closures and maintain the closures to hunting to be adopted by the Board in regulations.In FY 2011, the Council made recommendations to the Federal Subsistence Board on proposed changes to one fisheries regulation, 12 wildlife regulations, and two recommendations for funding for proposed 2011 and 2012 Fisheries Monitoring Plan projects. 54 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 cbe6283a-3602-49ed-a75d-1bf9086ff4d8 Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Bristol Bay Subsistence Regional Advisory Council Department of the Interior For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 ANILCA, Title VIII, Section 805(c) requires the Federal Subsistence Board to consider and adopt the report and recommendations of the Regional Advisory Council concerning the taking of fish and wildlife within the region for subsistence on public lands.
