The socio-cultural importance of seal hunting / Søren Stachie Nielsen.

Title: The socio-cultural importance of seal hunting / Søren Stachie Nielsen.
Author(s): Nielsen, Søren Stachie.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Aldershot: Ashgate Publishing Company
In: Dependency, autonomy, sustainability in the Arctic. (1999.),
Abstract: Author spent time in 1995 with family in Aappilattoq, settlement of 160 people in northern Greenland. Economists find it difficult to measure value of seal hunting while some in West accept it until they issue of money may be involved. At Aappilattoq, both hunting and fishing take place, with fishing now bigger part financially. Seals are still vital for feeding dogs, as well as for fresh food. This implies seal netting in winter. Author also stayed in Pribilof Islands, where animal rights groups closed official seal harvest in 1973. Collapse in morale followed, though some sealing continued - 1200 animals in 1995.
