The Commercial Fishery Division manages rockfish in seven districts in the Kodiak area. Chiniak Bay near the town of Kodiak overlaps the NE District, and significant numbers of black rockfish are caught there by sport anglers, which factors into the management.

Note that each herd has a largely distinct calving area. These areas help to separate one herd from another, even when caribou from separate herds might forage side by side at other parts of the year.
