   The Bering Sea Sub-Network (BSSN) is comprised of a set of coastal communities 
   representing six indigenous cultures: three in the Russian Federation and 
   three in the United States. The objective of BSSN is to develop a framework 
   that will enable residents in remote Arctic communities to systematically 
   document physical and social changes occurring in their region. In 2008 and 
   2009, approximately 300 hunters and fishermen participated a pilot project of 
   harvest surveys covering species caught, species health, and intended use; 
   changing climate and environmental conditions; location and travel 
   information; and a review of harvest conditions.

   This data set is a report of the preliminary findings from the pilot phase of 
   BSSN.
