Federal Subsistence Management Program

With an annual budget of more than $20 billion and a staff of more than 70,000, the Department of the Interior harbors a broad range of responsibilities, from operating the Bureau of Indian Affairs to overseeing the National Parks system. Tucked away in one corner of this federal behemoth is a fascinating program called the Federal Subsistence Management Program. As the page notes, the role of this "multi-agency effort" is to "provide the opportunity for a subsistence way of life by rural Alaskans on Federal public lands and waters while maintaining healthy populations of fish and wildlife." Readers may scout the latest on Alaskan wildlife, peruse information on Fish stocks, examine updates on the politics of the program (under the Statewide tab), and stay up to date on the Federal Subsistence Board (FSB). This site is a gold mine of information for readers fascinated with the landscape of Alaska and the humans who subsist off its rich natural resources.
