Handle your fish with care

Posted: Monday, July 24, 2006

Please help provide more money for scholarships by taking care of your fish!

• Do not clean your fish! Please turn in your fish in the round. Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation regulations do not allow cleaned fish to be accepted by the Derby.

• Do everything possible to preserve the quality of your fish. The following guidelines have been provided by the Alaska Department of Fish & Game for keeping your fish in the best possible condition so that the maximum value is retained:

• Keep them moist and cool. Please ice your fish. Ice is available at all weigh-in stations and Tee Harbor.

• Please do not put fish in plastic bags. Use wet burlap if you do not have ice.

• Turn in your fish as soon as possible.
