About this book

This volume contains the reports of three panels of experts called in by the IWC to examine three aspects of aboriginal subsistence whaling:

* Wildlife;
* Nutrition;
* Cultural Anthropology;

Although largely called in response to the Alaskan bowhead whale fishery the volume also contains valuable information on the Greenlandic fisheries.
