Merging Alaskan Aquaculture and Coastal Management

by Jerry L. Madden, Alaska Dep of Fish & Game, Juneau, AK, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '87


Since the 1970s the coastal management and the private aquaculture programs in Alaska have developed and progressed in a parallel, yet unilateral fashion. The efforts at clarifying shared goals and objectives required extensive interagency coordination and resulted in permit reform. 'Merging Alaskan Aquaculture and Coastal Management' tells how the programs evolved compared to other states and how a merger occurred. Further, the paper serves as a primer in considering problems encountered by other states facing the same challenge of overcoming barriers of stratified planning and review systems and seeking solutions to the inflexibility of established practices.
