HIA Environmental assists with reactivating local fish and game Icy Straits Advisory Committee

The ADF&G Icy Straits Advisory Committee (ISAC) was successfully reactivated after 5 years of inactivity. Advisory committees are local groups that meet to discuss fish and wildlife issues and make recommendations and proposals to the Alaska boards of fisheries and game.
