The Subsistence Harvest of Northern Fur Seals on the Pribilof Islands in 2005

August 01, 2006

Subsistence harvest report

Unangam sealers must balance the present subsistence sub-adult male fur seal harvest on the Pribilofs with the interest to reintroduce traditional management and regulation of harvests. This balance must accommodate and transition with the current needs of the Aleut Communities of St. George and St. Paul Islands within the context of the current and transitioning population dynamics of northern fur seals and the dramatic environmental changes occurring in the Bering Sea. The compilation and reporting of fur seal subsistence harvest information is an important element of this balance
