Group: Summary

   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 in 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 contains survey data from the pilot phase of BSSN.
