Nearly 20 percent of Alaska's wildlife troopers will be present in the Bristol Bay area to enforce regulations in the world’s largest salmon fishery this year, Alaska Native News reports.

The Division of Alaska State Troopers (AST) will also have workers in the Dillingham and King Salmon areas, as well as several temporarily assigned troopers from other regions of the state to assist with the robust openers that occur, the state said.

The troopers will be conducting high visibility patrols designed to engage with fishing crews on how to follow the law and maintain a safe environment for everyone.

Troopers will conduct patrols and investigations by air, land and sea, the agency said.
