As we have done
with our land based cultural and traditional hunting zones, to protect our traditional
foods, so we must begin to protect our marine reserves for our customary and traditional
needs. Demands for marine resources are at an all time high, even depleting the vast
resources of the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea. Foreign owned and operated
processing companies have been given ownership to many of our public resources, such
as the crab of the Bering Sea.
