The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced it will distribute $50 million to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game through the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration and Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration programs. Nearly $33 million will be for wildlife research and management, public access to wildlife resources, and hunter education programs and shooting ranges, a 12 percent increase from last year. More than $17 million will be for sport fish research and management, public access to waters for recreational boaters and sport anglers, angler recruitment, retention, and reactivation programs, and sport fish hatcheries.
