Two waterway safety committees have been established in the Bering Strait, Chukchi and Beaufort seas as well as the Cook Inlet region and a third will cover the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands region. The committees are established with guidance from the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and are composed of stakeholders including industry, tribes and conservation organizations. These committees work with advisors from federal and state agencies to develop voluntary best management practices for vessel operators.
