Description

Editors: L. Jay Field, James Fall, Thomas Nighswander, Nancy Peacock, Usha Varanasi

The Exxon Valdez oil spill caused many residents of Prince William Sound, Lower Cook Inlet, and Kodiak Island villages to question whether their traditional subsistence shellfish, fish, and marine mammal resources were contaminated and no longer safe to eat. This book addresses the response to the disaster by Native Alaskans and documents the response to the multidisciplinary issues relating to subsistence food safety, including approaches to risk assessment and risk communication. The contributors to this book share their firsthand experiences in tackling the subsistence seafood-safety issues that arose from the spill and the important lessons learned.
