Technical papers and annual management reports are available to the public. The Subsistence Section 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 Subsistence Section and in the Community Subsistence Information System (CSIS).
