Injured Resources Addressed: Subsistence

Abstract: The project will provide information for an update of the status of subsistence uses in the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill area. Subsistence uses are a vital natural resource service that was injured by the spill and has not recovered. The project will be a partnership between the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, the Chugach Regional Resources Commission, the Kodiak Area Native Association, and the Bristol Bay Native Association. In early 2004 local research assistants and department researchers will interview face-to-face approximately 760 households in 14 communities about their subsistence activities in 2003. The questionnaire will be similar to that used in previous rounds of interviews. A planning workshop and data review workshop will be held involving study community representatives. A database with study findings and a final report will be produced. Training of local researchers and capacity building are key goals of the project.
