Kotzebue Sound Management Area Area
Subsistence Fishing


The Kotzebue Sound Fisheries Management Area is the most heavily studied region of the Arctic-Yukon-Kuskokwim Region in context of comprehensive subsistence research. Numerous ADF&G Division of Subsistence Technical Papers and Special Publications have been produced and are available on the ADF&G website. The majority of research projects conducted in the Kotzebue Sound area also have resulted in the collection of subsistence harvest information that is available online at ADF&G’s Community Subsistence Information System (CSIS).
