Subsistence fishing research

Alaska Department of Fish and Game Divisions of Commercial Fisheries, Subsistence, and Sport Fish publish annual management reports for subsistence fisheries in the Aleutian Islands area. Technical papers and annual management reports are available to the public. The Division of Subsistence has also conducted systematic household surveys pertaining to a single year’s harvest in the communities of Akutan, Atka, Nikolski, Saint George, Saint Paul, and Unalaska/Dutch Harbor. Results, including harvest estimates for finfish and shellfish are available in various technical papers produced by the Division of Subsistence and in the Community Subsistence Information System (CSIS). Both resources can be found through the data and reports tab.
