Hunting and fishing have long been a way of life in the North, and continue to be a key resource for achieving Food Security North of 60.   Sustainable harvesting of  wild meat, especially moose, caribou and fish, are staples for many Northerners.  For example, one moose will provide enough meat to feed two families for a year.  In the Yukon there are twice as many moose as people! This section relates some of the experiences, challenges, and successes related to those who harvest wild fish and game. It will continue to grow as we obtain more contributions from northern communities. We invite you to share your knowledge with us.
