Principal Investigator (PI): Jim Fall, Alaska Department of Fish & Game

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: All Spill Affected Areas

Restoration Category: General Restoration

Injured Resources Addressed: Subsistence

Abstract: Subsistence uses of fish and wildlife are vital services that were impaired as a result of the EVOS. Harvest levels have declined, resource sharing is reduced, and the transmission of skills and knowledge about natural resources was disrupted. Effects of the EVOS include concerns about the long term health effects of using resources from the spill area, loss of confidence in individuals’ abilities to judge if resources are safe to eat, scarcity of injured subsistence resources in traditional harvest areas, increased costs associated with subsistence harvest, and reduced opportunities for young people to learn the subsistence way of life. This project will design a coordinated approach to subsistence resource restoration and implement a planning process to develop subsistence restoration project proposals to the Trustee Council. Guidelines for restoration projects will be developed, ideas will be solicited, and restoration project proposals will be presented to the Trustee Council for funding consideration.
