COMIDA: Impact Monitoring for Offshore Subsistence Hunting (AK-08-04)

This study will constitute a key component of Chukchi Sea environmental studies pertinent to Chukchi Sea Lease Sale 193 scheduled for 2007. Industry has expressed strong interest in leasing in this area, likely followed by exploration and possibly development.

The COMIDA Workshop in November 1-3, 2006 recommended the monitoring of offshore subsistence hunting. The BOEM needs to establish an early baseline in the area and to monitor on an annual basis any significant changes in subsistence activities over time. In particular, monitoring efforts should be directed toward the hunt for marine mammals, including bowhead and beluga whales, walrus, polar bears, and seals.

The BOEM analysts and decision makers will use the information in NEPA analysis and documentation for Lease Sales, EPs andDPPs and in post-sale and post-exploration decision making in the Chukchi Sea. This study addresses aspects of USGS Recommendations 3.06, 3.07, 3.08, and 6.10.
