Just released. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has just updating their license and tag fees for 2017. While residents will see very few increases in pricing for licenses and tags, non-residents will see drastic increases in some areas.
This is the first time in over 20 years that the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has increased their prices.
Kevin Brooks, Deputy Commissioner of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game says “We are using the revenue from these licenses sales to match federal dollars, and all that goes to fish and wildlife management in the state of Alaska.”
“No one likes fee increases, but everyone realizes it is important for those who enjoy these activities,” said Brooks, explaining that of the $9 million generated in new revenue, $7 million in expected to come from fee increases for non-residents.
