Title Bar - Harvest Surveys

The subsistence harvest of migratory birds has been monitored since the mid-1980's using voluntary household surveys. The AMBCC Harvest Assessment Program started in 2004 and relies on collaboration between the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Alaska Dept. of Fish & Game, and many Alaska Native organizations. The survey program is funded by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (Control Number 1018-0124, exp. date 6/30/2016. Continuation of this harvest monitoring allows tracking trends in harvest levels and promotes engagement of subsistence users in resource management.
