36 CFR 242.17 - Determining priorities for subsistence uses among rural Alaska residents.

§ 242.17 Determining priorities for subsistence uses among rural Alaska residents.
(a) Whenever it is necessary to restrict the subsistence taking of fish and wildlife on public lands in order to protect the continued viability of such populations, or to continue subsistence uses, the Board shall establish a priority among the rural Alaska residents after considering any recommendation submitted by an appropriate Regional Council.
(b) The priority shall be implemented through appropriate limitations based on the application of the following criteria to each area, community, or individual determined to have customary and traditional use, as necessary:
(1) Customary and direct dependence upon the populations as the mainstay of livelihood;
(2) Local residency; and
(3) The availability of alternative resources.
(c) If allocation on an area or community basis is not achievable, then the Board shall allocate subsistence opportunity on an individual basis through application of the criteria in paragraphs (b)(1) through (3) of this section.
(d) In addressing a situation where prioritized allocation becomes necessary, the Board shall solicit recommendations from the Regional Council in the area affected.
