Each month, in each community, a local interviewer recommended by the local Renewable Resource Council collects harvest information in their community using a brief face-to-face interview. All adult Sahtu Dene-Metis (16yrs +) and a select group of adult non-beneficiaries who provide for their Dene-Metis families are interviewed every month. Numbers and general locations of all fish and wildlife species harvested are collected. The study is private and confidential (Terms of reference, Schedule 1 to Capter 13, Sahtu Land Claim); harvesters names will never be released. Confidentiality is maintained through use of harvester ID numbers.
