Native harvest statistics are counts, or estimates, of the numbers of each species of fish and wildlife taken over a specified time, in a specified area, by a particular group of Native people. This specialized form of fish and wildlife harvest statistics is akin to those counts or estimates taken by commercial and sport harvesters. The purpose of his study is to evaluate the methodologies employed in counting and estimating Native harvests, to assess the utility of existing data, and to recommend improvements for future data collection, management, analysis, and use. The primary geographic focus of this study is the Northwest Territories, where comprehensive surveys are currently underway, Special reference is made to northern Quebec, because earlier surveys there provided the model for current ones.
