    Alex DeMarban is a longtime Alaska journalist who covers business, the oil and gas industries and general assignments. Reach him at or [email protected] Sponsored. The Northern Region Program consists of research projects in the Interior, Arctic, and the Western regions of Alaska. The Northern region’s main office in Fairbanks is staffed by regional manager Jim Simon, 13 Subsistence Resource Specialists (SRSs), two administration staff, five social science technicians, and two interns.

    Research related to North Slope subsistence hunted animals indicates that: You will find a Food Guide and some recipes. There is also a children's coloring book. Radiation and Wild Food Safety. State of Alaska Epidemiology Bulletins Effects of changing sea ice on marine mammals and subsistence hunters in northern Alaska from traditional. State subsistence law creates a priority for subsistence use over all other uses of fish and wildlife, but does not define subsistence users. Congress passes the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA), which protects the subsistence needs of rural Alaskans. The Alaska Board of Fisheries and Game adopts regulations.

    Alaska's changing environment: observations, projections, and impacts. Seasons. Many factors in Alaska's environment are specific to certain times of year: ice break-up of Alaska’s big rivers is a sure sign of spring; wildfires are a summer issue, and the season is lengthening; costly coastal flooding along the Bering and Chukchi Seas has historically been an autumn concern. Subsistence in the northern tier parks, however, "was more susceptible to publicity," and the photographs and descriptions that emanated from the various NPS proposal documents for these park units often highlighted Natives, Native harvesting, and Native craft items.

Division research shows that trade and commerce have been part of traditional subsistence systems for thousands of years in Alaska. As a more recent example, the commercial fur trade with European markets began about years ago, exchanging European currencies and goods for furs taken during subsistence trapping.

Subsistence uses of wild resources exist alongside other important uses of fish and game in Alaska and are especially important for most rural families, who depend on subsistence hunting and fishing as sources of nutrition and cultural practices.

An estimated million pounds of wild foods are harvested annually by rural subsistence users. Subsistence Research. The mission and core services of the Division of Subsistence center on scientifically gathering, quantifying, evaluating, and reporting on how Alaskans harvest and use wild resources.

Much of the research is conducted in partnerships with local communities and all of the division’s projects follow ethical principles of the social sciences. Wildlife Management and Subsistence Hunting in Alaska (Polar Research Series) by Huntington, Henry P.

TITLE ORGANIZATION. As the Alaska Food Policy Council and others concluded in a report, one reason Alaska’s past farming experiments failed was because they assumed that the only way to grow a food economy was.

A detailed profile of traditional/country foods consumed by subsistence communities of northern Alaska is required to address chronic exposure in more detail. Overall, bowhead whale tissues and other biota from northern Alaska are safe to consume at, or below, the levels calculated.

The term, "subsistence," encompasses more than just food on the table. It involves the fundamentals of identity and culture, including the customs, traditions, values and beliefs that make Alaska Native peoples and rural communities unique.

The subsistence way of life is rooted in a strong sense of place that extends back through the generations. Alaska's coastal communities depend on healthy marine resources to support commercial and recreational fisheries, tourism, and the Alaskan way of life. Our mission at NOAA Fisheries Alaska Regional Office is the science-based stewardship of Alaska’s marine resources and their habitats in the Gulf of Alaska, eastern Bering Sea, and Arctic oceans.

Congress directly addressed subsistence with the passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act (ANILCA) in In addition to setting aside more than million acres of land in Alaska for conservation, it gave rural Alaskans priority for the subsistence harvest of fish and wildlife on Federal public lands—about million acres or more than 60 percent of the land.

Introduction. Fish and wildlife are important resources to the residents of north-west Alaska (AK). In Kotzebue, AK, fish and marine mammals comprise the majority (70%) of subsistence harvested foods with sheefish representing 45% of the total fish harvest and ice seals (spotted, ringed, bearded) accounting for 98% of the marine mammal harvest ().

Sincefederal law has protected subsistence uses by "rural" Alaska residents. The rural language in ANILCA was a political compromise primarily intended to protect subsistence uses by Alaska Natives. Congress presumed that subsistence fishing and hunting by Alaska Natives would be largely safeguarded by a law protecting fishing and hunting of "rural" residents.

Subsistence Regulations Overview Alaska state law directs the Board of Game and Board of Fisheries to provide a reasonable opportunity for subsistence uses first, before providing for other uses of any harvestable surplus of a fish or game population [AS (b)].

1. Introduction. Subsistence hunting and fishing account for a large proportion of the food produced and consumed in rural Alaska (ADF&G, ).The types of fish, marine mammals, seabirds, invertebrates, and plants that are harvested reflect cultural preferences, access, harvest technology, and of course the underlying ecology of the surrounding land, freshwaters, and sea (e.g.
