Fish and Game Survey

The Chase residents have been asked by Fish and Game to participate in a subsistance surveys. They will be at the 1/17/2013 -CCC meeting to explain the process and if anyone wants to complete the survey at the meeting they will have staff available to complete the survey at that time in lieu of a possible home visit. The following is the letter to the CCC concerning the survey. During winter 2013 the Alaska Department of Fish and Game Division of Subsistence will be visiting Chase to conduct a Comprehensive Harvest Assessment Subsistence Survey. The study attempts to document the subsistence way of life in all its complexity including harvest, use, sharing, and participation by community members. Surveys take approximately a half hour to complete. Participating in this research benefits your community because it documents the importance of subsistence resources to residents. This project will help fulfill the Division of Subsistence mandate to provide customary and traditional subsistence harvest and use data for the Boards of Fisheries and Game process. Data from this project will also be used to measure the potential impacts of the proposed Susitna-WatanaProject. During our visit, residents will have the opportunity to relate their concerns about subsistence issues. At your January 17th Community Council Meeting I will give a presentation on the project. I will have several research staff available following the meeting if residents would like to participate in the survey at that time. We can then visit your community in February to conduct the survey with anyone we might have missed. Our goal is to interview all residents of Chase. Please call me or email me if you have any questions. Sincerely, Davin Holen Subsistence Program Manager, Southern Region Alaska Department of Fish and Game Division of Subsistence 333 Raspberry Road Anchorage, AK 99518-1565 (907)267-2807
