AbstractIn Alaska, about half of the State's native population of 100,000 people leave partially or entirely off the land through fishing, hunting and gathering. A controversy exists as to if, n years of low yield, Native Alaskans who live off the land should have priority rights in regard to hunting and fishing. In years of scarcity, the closing off of fishing streams to all but subsentence fishers can make the difference between profit or loss for commercial fisherman, and issues exist as who qualifies as a subsistence fisherman or hunter.
