Record #191748:

The value of a polar bear: evaluating the role of a multiple-use resource in the Nunavut mixed economy / Martha Dowsley.

Title: The value of a polar bear: evaluating the role of a multiple-use resource in the Nunavut mixed economy / Martha Dowsley.
Author(s): Dowsley, Martha.
Date: 2010.
In: Arctic Anthropology. (2010.), Vol. 47(1) (2010)
Abstract: Describes polar bear (Ursus maritimus) as "common pool resource" that contributes to both subsistence and monetary aspects of Nunavut mixed economy through its use as food, sale of hides in fur trade, and sport hunt outfitting. Sport hunting is more financially profitable than subsistence hunting; however, proportion of polar bear quota devoted to sport hunting has become relatively stable at approx. 20% across Nunavut. This ratio suggests that local Inuit organisations are not using neoclassical economic model based on profit maximisation.
