Objective(s): The Sahtu Settlement Harvest Study is an important project required under the Sahtu Land Claim Agreement (1993). The Sahtu Renewable Resources Board (a co-management board set up under the Claim) is responsible for conducting this project. The study will count the numbers of fish and wildlife harvested by Sahtu Dene and Metis until April 2003 (5-year study). The Board will use this information to meet two specific objectives : (1) to establish the minimum needs of Sahtu Dene and Metis, and (2) to be used as a tool in natural resource management in the Sahtu region.
