Wild food harvests in Alaska by area, 1990s

Year: 2010 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, GRID-Arendal & CAFF
The harvest of natural resources is a key feature of traditional lifestyles and economies throughout the Arctic, and a continuing reliance on it as a mainstay of indigenous existence in the north is evident. In Alaska, wild food harvests vary considerably by geographic area. The total harvest has been estimated at about 43.7 million pounds (approximately 19.8 million kg) of wild resources, an average of about 375 pounds (170 kg) per capita. This is in comparison with an estimated 16–40 pounds (7–18 kg) per capita of fish and wildlife resources harvested by people living in urbanized parts of the state.
